Review copies are available upon request. Praise for Medusa's Country"Gut-wrenching honesty, spiritual courage, and unflinching vision are what it takes to visit Medusa'sCountry. [Larissa draws] on the experience of her immense challenges-prostitution, alcoholism, drugs and insanity-and her immense advantages-a gift for poetic form, a razor-sharp mind, the spirit of a mystic, and a deep intimacy with world literature and culture- to share with us precious and hard-learned lessons: the necessity not only to survive but to triumph, and the crucial place of art and culture in that achievement."-Annie Finch, author of A Poet's Craft: A Comprehensive Guide to Making and Sharing Your Poetry"Medusa peels herself from the pages of mythology to become a denizen of New York City's margins. . . Along the way, the gorgon assumes other personae, including a whore named Nora. With verve, with chutzpah, with urgency, Larissa Shmailo's poems are spells, transforming stone into flesh and death into an affirmation of life."-Dean Kostos, author of This Is Not a Skyscraper# # # It's not easy to find a guide to take you there, but Larissa Shmailo is ready for the job. She spares herself-and her reader-no pains in the search for home, drawing on the experience of her immense challenges-prostitution, alcoholism, drugs and insanity-and her immense advantages-a gift for poetic form, a razor-sharp mind, the spirit of a mystic, and a deep intimacy with world literature and culture- to share with us precious and hard-learned lessons: the necessity not only to survive but to triumph, and the crucial place of art and culture in that achievement. Brace yourself. Medusa'sCountry is a book to savor, and Larissa Shmailo, novelist, translator, and poet of urgent maturity and resonant depth, is a writer to watch.-Annie Finch, author of A Poet's Craft: A Comprehensive Guide to Making and Sharing Your Poetry These poems parse matters of sex and literature, of life and death, not only of "I, Shmailo, dervish, a lover signed," but of all who walk the questioning edges of sound, sense and what poetry can do to you. -Lee Ann Brown, author of Other Archer and In the Laurels, Caught Medusa peels herself from the pages of mythology to become a denizen of New York City's margins. With verve, with chutzpah, with urgency, Larissa Shmailo's poems are spells, transforming stone into flesh and death into an affirmation of life.-Dean Kostos, author of This Is Not a Skyscraper
