Joan Houlihan's work manages at once to be deeply human and to push the boundaries of expression. Her extraordinary third collection, The Us, a poetic sequence that gives voice to a tribe of nomadic hunter-gatherers, was named a 2009 must-read by the Massachusetts Center for the Book. Ilya Kaminsky has praised the "magnificent force" of its just-released sequel, Ay, calling it "epic in scope, lyric in texture."
