Book Release: Exorcism Lessons in the Heartland by Cara Dees

Posted by on Monday, October 7, 2019 in News.

Cara Dees, MFA ‘2014, has published a new book of poetry. Exorcism Lessons in the Heartland is the winner of the 2018 Barrow Street Poetry Prize, selected by Ada Limón.

“Navigating a landscape of loss with language that is both lyrically charged and freshly brutal, Cara Dees has given us a first book that is unexpected and burning with life. The weight of absence fills the pages, but the world is not without light and resurrection. Both suffused with feeling and fueled by a restless search for a way of being in the world, this is a beautiful book alive with humanity.”

Ada Limón, author of The Carrying
