As new.

At the heart of acclaimed poet Catherine Pierce’s much-anticipated third book, a powerful tornado churns, spinning out poems of disaster and love, of sirens and wrecked landscapes, of warnings heeded and not. These poems stare down fear from the inside, and ask what it means to walk straight into a splintering world both profane and sacred.

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.
