Wild LiarPublisher: Carnegie Mellon University PressISBN: 978-0-88748-689-0Genre: Poetry Price: $15.95
The poems of Pope’s new, wide-ranging collection, Wild Liar, emerge from a deep engagement with the weathers of relationship and the nature of memory in writing remarkable for its lyricism and precision. As Richard Blanco has noted, her work embodies “a voice that is fully aware of its truth and contradiction, clarity and doubt, mortal bounds and limitless imagination.”
Deborah Pope has published five books of poetry–Fanatic Heart, Mortal World,
Falling Out of the Sky, Take Nothing and most recently Wild Liar, from Carnegie Mellon Press. Her work has been in Poetry, Threepenny Review, Michigan Quarterly Review, Georgia Review, EPOCH, Birmingham Poetry Review and Poetry Northwest, among others. She has also been awarded the Robinson Jeffers Prize.
