Saturnalia Books | IPG (October 15, 2020)

New in paperback.

The poems in Catherine Pierce's new Danger Days celebrate our planet while also bearing witness to its collapse. In poems steeped deep in the 21st century, Pierce weaves superblooms and Legos, gun violence and ghosts, glaciers and contaminant masks, urging us to look closely at both the horror and beauty of our world. As Pierce writes in "Planet," "I'm trying to see this place even as I'm walking through it."

Catherine Pierce is the author of The Tornado Is the World and The Girls of Peculiar, both winners of the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters Poetry Prize, and of Famous Last Words, winner of the Saturnalia Books Poetry Prize. Her work has appeared in The Best American Poetry, the New York Times, American Poetry Review, The Nation, the Academy of American Poets Poem-a-Day series, and elsewhere. An NEA Fellow and two-time Pushcart Prize winner, she is Professor of English at Mississippi State University, where she co-directs the creative writing program.
