Persea Books, 2020
Sometimes compact, sometimes expansive, the poems in Ghost Hour emanate from adolescence and other liminal spaces, considering girlhood and contemporary womanhood—the ways both are fraught with the pleasures and limits of embodiment
Laura Cronk writes personally, intimately, yet never without profound consideration of contemporary violence, which we must love in spite of and rage against.
Laura Cronk is the author of a previous book of poetry, Having Been An Accomplice, winner of the 2011 Lexi Rudnitsky First Book Prize. She is Chair of Undergraduate Creative Writing at The New School in New York City.
