Poetry. Translated into the Italian by Luigi Fontanella. The winner of the Borgighera Poetry Prize, RUNNING AWAY FROM RUSSIA is "dense with complex imagery. The poet [makes] a raid upon the inarticulate. This poet knows what [she] is after. A passage in the first poem says 'Sometimes I think it's a race / between what I know / and what the poem can tell me.' That kind of self-consciousness runs through many of the poems, and it's a liberating quality, not an inhibiting one. There are superb transformational moments in this poetry"-W.S. Di Piero, comments from the Judge's Report.
