Addicted to water and poetry (not necessarily in that order), Rose Auslander earned her MFA in Poetry from Warren Wilson College. Poetry Editor of Folded Word Press and Editor of the unFold zine, she is the author of the chapbooks Folding Water, Hints, and The Dolphin in the Gowanus. She has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and has read her poems on NPR. Rose lives in Hyannis, MA.

“These poems are formally inventive and emotionally complex. They are furious, yearning. In their address of familial love, they chart new ground… a generous and frank consideration at how a child's coming out might move a parent into fraught territory. What sings in these poems is their willingness to give a hard look to the self, to dramatize the self in flux….” ––Liz Bradfield, author of Approaching Ice and Once Removed

“... a journey where family, the natural world, and the memory of what is lost come together to form a luminous map for how we might survive…. There's a maturity to these poems that never once gets in the way of wonder and real revelation…. I am grateful for these poems and for this poet.” ––Gabrielle Calvocoressi, author of The Last Time I Saw Amelia Earhart and Apocalyptic Swing

Auslander’s “animating language––mercurial, elemental, searing in the intensity and boldness of its vision––creates an incandescent, shape-shifting interior landscape, as it seeks to follow a child’s bewildering path into the wild ‘to join those who practice the art of invisible mending.” ––Eleanor Wilner, author of Tourist in Hell and Otherwise

"We need poetry, and we need good poetry, and Rose Auslander is just that... [her] sophisticated line and language play constantly forces her reader to do a retake as poems are beautifully crafted, then turned on their heads... Moving between the epistolary and quickened poems of passion, the aesthetics of this collection are to be long felt after a first reading. It is one you will return to for any number of reasons—loss, craft, language." ––John Bonanni, editor of the Cape Cod Poetry Review
