borrowed world emily leithauserThe Borrowed World by Emily Leithauser is forthcoming this July from Able Muse Press. Winner of the 2015 Able Muse Book Award, the poetry award presented annually, The Borrowed World is Leithauser’s first book.

Judge Peter Campion says of his selection, “Leithauser portrays the inevitability of loss, in romantic and familial relationships, and yet, without ever offering false resolutions or pat conclusions, she manages to make her poems themselves convincing stays against loss. I mean that this book is made to endure. The Borrowed World marks the arrival of a major talent.”

The Borrowed World is available for order at the Able Muse Press website, where digital editions will also be available upon publication.
