“LOOKING FOR COVER is Maria Fama at her best. Her poetry is a lyrical invitation to a world that is richly and sensuously detailed, where everything is honored-most notably the timelessness of the ancestors and our own lives as we revisit ourselves”-Janet Mason. A graduate of Temple University, Maria Fama is the author of four other books and has been published in numerous literary journals and anthologies. Maria Fama is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Aniello Lauri Award for Creative Writing (2002 and 2005), the 1994 Dream Images Poetry Award, and the Amy Tritsch Needle Award for Poetry, in 2006.
