SHARON KRAUS 's first volume of poems, Generation, unflinchingly documents what Publisher's Weekly calls "the eros of abuse." "Sensual, passionate, earthly and unearthly together," writes Jean Valentine, "Sharon Kraus's work brings a fierce grief up into the sane daylight of her words." Of her new collection, Strange Land, Marie Ponsot writes that the poems are "darkly brilliant, reaching from harm to healing and the risk of hope." Kraus's awards include fellowships from the MacDowell Colony and the Editor's Choice Award from Columbia: A Journal of Literature and Art.
