About the Author

DamianRogers was born and raised in suburban Detroit. Her poems have been published in "Brick Magazine," "MoonLit," " Salt Hill," "This Magazine," and "The Walrus." She lives in Toronto.


"Coolly observed and image-driven, her poems are unsettling and at times enigmatic. But they can also be spellbinding, filled with striking turns of phrase." "--Toronto Star" "Tells us of dreams that sound like our own, shooting little arrows of insight that split the heart, revealing the shocking vulnerability of life. "Paper Radio" is a jewel of a book that you will want to read over and over and over again." --Greg Keelor, singer-songwriter "What the cool kids will be reading." --Afterword, "National Post" "In "Paper Radio", Damian Rogers emerges as a poet of startling clarity, intelligence, toughness, and tenderness." --April Bernard, author, "Blackbird", "Bye Bye"; "Pirate Jenny"; "Psalms"; "Romanticism"; and "Swan Electric" "I'm rather amazed at what Toronto writer Damian Rogers achieves in her poetry collection, Paper Radio . . . In her first collection of poems, Rogers is writing a density with such an enviable ease, rivaling even American poet Sarah Manguso for her clear, tight wisdom and ease of thought, but in a prevailing edge and undercurrent of darkness far more wry than cut." --rob mclennan, author, aubade "Perhaps the most attractive quality of Rogers' voice is the meditative effect produced by certain verses, the Zen-like mindfulness that connects past, present and future experiences in a coherent, colorful continuum. 'I said oh. I said wait, hold on / I am changing into someone / completely different and better, ' the poet writes and suddenly we are all changed too. Recommended." --"Scene Magazine" "Written with the confidence of a teenager carving her arm. . . . Rogers is able to execute that most important of the poet's tasks, seeing the atypical in the typical . . . An auspicious debut." --"Broken Pencil" "Damian Rogers' troubled teens, ecstatic utopians, and distracted deities are evidence of a powerful poetic storyteller . . . It's rare to find a young poet so deeply invested in both her own experience and the reader's pleasure. A splendid, memorable debut." --Kevin Connolly
