Jessica Fisher Signing Inmost

In these haunting lyrics, Fisher weighs the proximity, physical no less than linguistic, of nurture and violence.

Jessica Fisher’s second book of poems brings lyric’s intensity of perception to an era of global war while chronicling the everyday motions of new motherhood. In this elegant and elusive work, the inmost moves outward, like sight or voice, into the external world.

 “Her poems are analytic meditations, their variety and beauty manifestations of extraordinary sensitivity to English syntax.”—Louise Glück

Jessica Fisher‘s (daughter of local poet Ann Fisher-Wirth) first book of poems, Frail-Craft, won the 2006 Yale Younger Poets Award and was a finalist for the Northern California Book Award. She holds a Ph.D. in English from the University of California, Berkeley, and lives in Oakland.
