In her new poetry collection, Carol V. Davis crosses cultural and geographic boundaries to explore her family’s history as Jews, as outsiders, as immigrants. Ranging from Los Angeles to Nebraska to Germany to Russia, she probes the boundaries between faith, folklore, and superstition, trying to find her own way through terrain both menacing and inviting. Her restless mind is most at home at the uncomfortable edges where solace, when found, is ephemeral and fragmentary.

Poet Carol Davis studied Russian language and literature at Western Washington University's Fairhaven College where she was alum of the year, and earned a degree in interdisciplinary studies there as well as an MA in Slavic language and literature from the University of Washington. She is the author of the full-length poetry collections It’s Time to Talk About…/Pora Govorit’o—(1997), a bilingual collection published in Russia; Into the Arms of Pushkin: Poems of St. Petersburg (2007), winner of the T.S. Eliot Prize; and Between Storms (2012). Her chapbooks include Letters from Prague (1991) and The Violin Teacher (2005).
