Winner of the John Ciardi Prize for Poetry, selected by Patricia Spears Jones
Burch imagines Eve’s life after Eden, in a world both ancient and contemporary, dystopian and redeemed.
Beverly Burch is also the author of the poetry collections How a Mirage Works (Sixteen Rivers Press), which was a finalist for the Audre Lorde Award, and Sweet to Burn (winner of the Gival Press Poetry Prize and a Lambda Literary Award). She is also the author of two nonfiction books on psychoanalytic theory and sexual orientation: On Intimate Terms (University of Illinois Press) and Other Women (Columbia University Press). An Atlanta native, she has lived most of her adult life in the Bay Area and has a psychotherapy practice in Berkeley, California.
