About the Author
Tomas Transtromer (1933-2015) received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2011. His books of poetry, which have been translated into sixty languages, include "The Deleted World" and "The Half-Finished Heaven", and he received numerous international honors during his lifetime. Transtromer, a trained Swedish psychologist, worked for years in state institutions with juveniles and the disabled, and his work was often praised for the inventive ways in which it examined the mind. When he was awarded the Nobel Prize, the Swedish Academy stated that "through his condensed, translucent images, he gave us fresh access to reality."
Michael McGriff's books include HOME BURIAL (Copper Canyon Press, 2012), a New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice selection; Dismantling the Hills; a translation of Tomas Transtromer's THE SORROW GONDOLA (Green Integer, 2010); and an edition of David Wevill's essential writing, To Build My Shadow a Fire. He is a former Stegner Fellow and Jones Lecturer at Stanford University, and his work has been recognized with a Lannan Literary Fellowship and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
