Sara London

 

Sara London's first book, The Tyranny of Milk, is as fresh and quirky as its title, and brims with what Terrance Hayes has called "clear-eyed utterance." Journalist, editor, and graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, she currently teaches creative writing and literature at Mt. Holyoke College; she has also taught at Amherst, and, for many years, at Smith.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Peggy O'Brien

 

Praised by the Irish Times for writing that is "subtle, elusive and tinged with erotic intensity," Peggy O'Brien is the editor of the Wake Forest Book of Irish Women's Poetry and a member of the English Department at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. To borrow one of her own phrases, her new collection, Frog Spotting, is an 'adventure of the optic nerve.'
