About the Author
Praise For Cloud of Ink (Iowa Poetry Prize)…
“L. S. Klatt’s new collection creates a taxonomy of mystery, magic, surprise. Like a cloud, it floats through the reader’s mind with playful shapeliness—but like ink, it leaves a darker, and lasting, impression.”—Robert N. Casper, publisher, jubilat
" I am adrift in a burned-out canoe / without a helmsman.' If you've ever felt lik this, then L.S. Klatt's Cloud of Ink should offer you some kind of cold-in this case the right kind of cold-comfort. Klatt's poems broadcast elegiac tones and redemptive notes; their combinations underscore the conviction we know by poetry's precisions, in some places and at some times felt as hope in spite of despair."-Dara Wier, Reverse Rapture
