The descriptive angularities, formal variance, and musical resources are sassy, tricky, and intriguing, full of razzle-dazzle and enormously beguiling, even as a tragic sense simmers within their marvelous contraptions.

Catherine Wing grew up in Kentucky. She received her undergraduate degree from Brown University and, most recently, her MFA in poetry at the University of Washington in Seattle.
