Bend is the first collection from award-winning poet Natasha Saj. A wonderfully kinetic gathering of poems that will delight and enlighten even the most jaded reader, Bend challenges us with lively wit, sensuous observations, and intricate nuance as the poems explore the theme of transformation, even as they transform from lyric to prose narrative and everything in between. A masterful performance from a writer with an unquestionably profound and distinctive voice.
Natasha Saj has garnered many honors, including the Robert Winner Award from the Poetry Society of America, and the 2002 Campbell Corner Poetry Prize.
