"A heady, infectious celebration."--"The New Yorker"
"Shaughnessy's voice is smart, sexy, self-aware, hip . . . consistently wry, and ever savvy."--"Harvard Review"
Brenda Shaughnessy's heartrending third collection explores dark subjects--trauma, childbirth, loss of faith--and stark questions: What is the use of pain and grief? Is there another dimension in which our suffering might be transformed? Can we change ourselves? Yearning for new gods, new worlds, and new rules, she imagines a parallel existence in the galaxy of Andromeda.
From "Our Andromeda":
"Cal, faster than the lightest light, so much faster than love, and our Andromeda, that dream, "
"I can feel it living in us like weare its home. Like it remembers usfrom its own childhood."
"Oh, maybe, Cal, we "are" home, if God will let us live here, with Andromeda inside us, "
"doesn't it seem we belong? Now and then, will you help me belonghere, in this place where you became"
"my child, and I your motherout of some instant of mysteryof crash and matter . . . "
Brenda Shaughnessy earned degrees from the University of California Santa Cruz and Columbia University. She is the author of "Human Dark with Sugar" (Copper Canyon Press, 2008), winner of the James Laughlin Award from the Academy of American Poets; and "Interior with Sudden Joy" (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1999). She has taught creative writing at Princeton, New York University, and The New School, and currently teaches at Rutgers University. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
