Eagle Pond Authors: Fanny Howe
Fanny Howe is the author of more than 20 books of poetry and prose, most recently Second Childhood, a finalist for the National Book Award, Come and See, The Lyrics and The Winter Sun: Notes on a Vocation. Her novels include Nod, Saving History and Indivisible. Howe was the only American nominated for the Man-Booker International Prize, awarded on an author’s body of work. She also received the 2009 Ruth Lily Poetry Prize for lifetime achievement and many other notable awards. Her work explores grammatical possibilities, and its rhythms are generated from associative images and sounds.
