Channeling the powerful female monster Medusa, she sings about addiction, toxic relationships, real love, and the path to finding one's identity: From "To the Thanatos within Me":What catharsis there is in the dive, the gesture, the infinite jest,the slash, the brush (its own fire), the dance with death?Larissa Shmailo's translations from Russian include the iconic avant-garde opera Victory over the Sun; her latest novel is Patient Women.

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

Now in a new edition of Larissa Shmailo's brilliant translation of the text, with a lively introduction by Eugene Ostashevsky, readers can appreciate the significance and innovativeness of the 1913 play. In communicating to us his musicality in English, Larissa Shmailo has done a remarkable job in conferring on Kruchenykh his true due as a poet."

"From under the El in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, to her window seat on the Harlem Line, Shmailo is right on track with poetry that dances with love, death and desire. The proverbial urban poet, Shmailo masterfully mixes the beauty and the gritty, in New York City." -Doug Holder, Ibbetson Street Press "Reader beware: these are poems that lurk. Larissa evokes a stark, incisive view of the mad world where 'graffiti burns my thighs / and I run through the clotheslines that flap on the roof' and you will not escape it by closing her extraordinary book. 'I will slash my wrists,' she tells us, 'and from my wrists will come ants and tired shopkeepers,' and we believe her. Writing doesn't get much better than this." -Jackie Sheeler, Talk Engine "In these visceral wanderings into Larissa Shmailo's narratives, we venture through the teeming back alleys of Brooklyn on through the poet's labyrinthine youth until we reach the trepidatious poetic psyche of a woman who has lost in love but keeps on gambling with a strength to envy and behold. In Paran is not here to soothe - this is a book willing to discomfit and excite anyone who has grown too comfortable, inciting them to 'forget the right answers/consult necromancers/allow the forbidden/ignore the guilt ridden/unlearn all the learning/embrace this new burning.'" -Amy King, I'm the Man Who Loves You "Larissa Shmailo invites the reader to 'imagine a use with me for all that doesn't fit.' Her poems, alive with discomfort and broken pieces, teach an art of compassion without illusion." poetry by Larissa Shmailo BlazeVOX [books], 2009
