“It’s awfully good to have such a great-hearted poet as Katha Pollitt take on mortality’s darkest themes. Again and again she finds a human-sized crack of light and squeezes us through with her.”—Kay Ryan, United States Poet Laureate
Katha Pollitt writes the award-winning column, “Subject to Debate,” for The Nation magazine. She is also the author of two books of poetry and several collections of essays. Pollitt currently lives in Berlin, where she is working on a new book.
