A National Book Critics Circle Award finalist and a recipient of the Paterson Prize, she lives in Raleigh, North Carolina.


Another splendid new one by one of our best, who never stops paying attention, and is never unwilling, and summons from her readers unwavering trust.--Mark Doty, author of Deep Lane
Beyond her admirable tenacity and spirit, Laux is just plain wise--and refreshingly unpretentious in her wisdom.... Laux's new poems arrive at the end of the collection as a perfect finale.--Jonathan Russell Clark
Dorianne Laux is one of those poets I turn to again and again for cradling beauty and darkness so close together in a poem.--Aimee Nezhukumatathil, author of Oceanic
Laux is majestic.... Her selected poems are gorgeous to revisit, but these new pieces are symphonic--and they become a perfect coda of grief.--Nick Ripatrazone
Throughout the years and throughout her five books Dorianne Laux has not faltered. She has wrestled with the angels and with the serpents; Eros and Thanatos are wrestling still, and the sound they make is the sound of this woman singing.--Marie Howe, author of Magdalene
When Laux welcomes readers into a personal moment, she speaks for humankind.... This is a catalogue of honest work, from beginning to end.
