About the Author

Charles Simic is perhaps our most disquieting muse. There are few poets writing in America today who share his lavish appetite for the bizarre, his inexhaustible repertoire of indelible characters and gestures. -The Harvard Review on Charles Simic.

Sara Sams is a poet, essayist, and translator from Oak Ridge, Tennessee. She currently works as an instructor for Arizona State University’s College of Interdisciplinary Humanities & Communications, where she provides faculty support for the Superstition Review. She is a graduate of Davidson College (B.A.) and Arizona State University (M.F.A.), and has received teaching fellowships from the Ministry of Education of Spain and the National University of Singapore.
