Lucia Perillo

Last November I quoted a poem here from Lucia Perillo's new book, Inseminating the Elephant. Today the publisher, Copper Canyon Press, sent me an exultant email announcing that the same book is a finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry. Check here for a good, meaty interview published last summer on the Poetry Foundation web site. Congratulations, Lucia Perillo!
