Katharine Rauk

"Haunted and haunting, lit by the distant flickering candlelight of childhood folktales, Katharine Rauk's poems are full of magical smells, ambitious insects and weeping toads. She takes us on dizzying trips inside the body's dark cavern. These grave and bright poems introduce us to an animistic universe of giddy possibility—hallucinatory, mysterious and beautiful."

—Amy Gerstler, author of Dearest Creature
