Editorial Reviews


"Heidy Steidlmayer's poetic voice is original, quirky, profoundly attuned to the history of language, and keenly aware of mortality and the joy that can be seized even amidst mortal perils."
Reginald Gibbons, author of Slow Trains Overhead: Chicago Poems and Stories.

Of Steidlmayer's work, Poetry magazine editor Christian Wiman wrote to The Sacramento Bee newspaper in September 2009: “She is a remarkable poet (who) writes poems of great compactness and density, as technically accomplished as they are emotionally devastating. This is an age of irony and sprawl, and she's going – bravely and with great success – her own way. People may not know much about her work now, but they will soon.

About the Author

Heidy Steidlmayer's poems have appeared in Poetry, TriQuarterly, Ploughshares, Literary Imagination, Michigan Quarterly Review, and elsewhere. Steidlmayer is a recipient of the J. Howard and Barbara M.J. Wood Prize from Poetry and a Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers' Award. Fowling Piece was awarded the 2012 John C. Zacharis Award.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I discovered Ms. Steidlmayer's poetry in Poetry Magazine, and I was hooked right away. These poems are short and haunting. A must-buy.
