Item description for Narcissus by Cecilia Woloch...
The winner of the Tupelo Press Snowbound Chapbook Award, selected by Marie Howe.
Through prose poems in the form of "postcards" and free verse, Cecilia Woloch gives us a stunningly honest peek into relationships, at once acutely intimate and unabashedly compassionate. She "speaks" with a vivid poetic voice that Billy Collins has praised as "intense and precise."
Cecilia Woloch is the author of three collections of poetry. Her poems have been featured in numerous journals and magazines, as well as anthologies such as Best American Poetry 2005, and Garrison Keillor's Good Poems for Hard Times. She is the director of Summer Poetry in Idyllwild and the Paris Poetry Workshop.
