The End of the Alphabet Information

Born in Jamaica and now making her home in the United States, Claudia Rankine writes poems that draw breath from alienation -- from her home, her body, her mind. Hailed by Robert Hass as "a fiercely gifted young poet, " Claudia Rankine has welded the cerebral and the spiritual, the sensual and the grotesque. With a fierce intelligence and daunting honesty, Rankine writes about her vulnerability by looking at those closest to her. Whether writing about the man she fell in love with, or the country she's come to that is not her home, what remains long after, in searing echo, is her voice -- its beguiling cadence and vivid physicality.
