A Hymn That Meanders by Maria Nazos

In passionate, lyrical, funny, angry, and ecstatic poems that migrate from the heartland of the country to the Atlantic coast and beyond, this young poet searches the world within her and around her for intimate myths that will hold, stories that will heal, actions that can transform the restless quest for love into its steady practice, adolescence into adulthood.

"With sonorous cadences, with relentless honesty, and with deeply human truths, as well as deeply human humans infusing her poems, Maria Nazos has written a stunning first collection. Godspeed (like a bolt, like a bullet) A Hymn That Meanders into the world!" Thomas Lux, author of Particles: Poems, The Cradle Place, The Street of Clocks, and New and Selected Poems, 1975-1995.

"Maria Nazos's first book successfully depicts an 'us' whose lyric motion is equal parts devotional and destructive but never accidental. This is grown-folk poetry, up front and adult, and there is not an ounce of surface-utterance in A Hymn that Meanders." Thomas Sayers Ellis, author of Skin Inc: Identity Repair Poems and The Maverick Room.

Maria Nazos was raised in Athens, Greece and Joliet, Illinois. She earned her MFA in Creative
Writing from Sarah Lawrence College. She lives and writes inProvincetown, Massachusetts.
