Of Sarah Sarai's new collection Debora Lidov wrote: "The generosity, the word play and re-play, the variations, the real world and its perpetual redemptions, the imagination's power not to transform exactly, but to reveal, which is transforming, make Geographies of Soul and Taffeta (Indolent Books), a rewarding read." Sarai's poems have been published in Painted Bride Quarterly, Boston Review, Threepenny Review, The Collagist, and many other journals. She has written essays about spirit guides and selling marijuana while in high school, holds an MFA from Sarah Lawrence College, and is thinking of getting a schnauzer. Check out Sarah Sarai at
