Emma Howell was born in Portland, Oregon, and died in 2001, at the age of twenty. She lived in Spain and Brazil and traveled widely in the world at large, forming many fast friendships with people of all ages, races, and creeds. She left behind a loving family, many close friends, and the magnificent, mature poems collected in this volume.
“How very gifted she was; the poems possess such an uncanny authority, swerve in such clean and unsettling ways, and hit such detailed, wonderfully unpredictable and always right-feeling notes, they’re truly stirring. And there seems a haunting prescience in many of them, so quietly there. Astonishing to think she wrote them at so young an age.”
