Heather Smith


Heather Derr-Smith is the author of "Each End of the World", poems about the war in Bosnia, and "The Bride Minaret. "In 'The Bride Minaret', Heather Derr-Smith explores the complex and difficult realities of our global world more comprehensively and comprehendingly than most American poets consider even attempting. Often paying close attention to those displaced and/or disconnected from the society around them-- Arabs in Europe, Americans in the Middle East, Mennonites in Iowa, Balkan refugees, Roma orphans, Palestinians, and, at the heart of the book, a mother now separated from her former, childless self-- These poems ultimately argue that dislocation is itself a kind of location, just as living forever in one place can end up dislocating oneself from the realities of our time." --Wayne Miller, author of "Only the Senses Sleep" and "The Book of Props"
