Poetry. "Pattie McCarthy has been one of our most intellectually ambitious poets-- a tradition she shares with Rachel Blau DuPlessis & with H.D. And indeed with the likes of Pound and Olson. We can still count the number of women who attempt writing on such a scale on the fingers of our hands. So it is worth noting and celebrating this addition to that roster" -- Ron Silliman. Pattie McCarthy's BK OF (H)RS was also published by Apogee Press in 2002. She received her M.A. in Creative Writing (Poetry) from Temple University. Her work has appeared in many magazines and journals, including 26:A JOURNAL OF POETRY & POETICS, AMERICAN LETTERS & COMMENTARY, ixnay magazine, Kiosk, and Pom2. She lives in Philadelphia.
