"Eleanor Lerman's poems have sociological savvy, philosophical rue, historical recognition, and vernacular resilience. They sing a song that is bravely gloomy, but they sing it with a fierce and earned dignity."Tony Hoagland

"Lerman is as sly as a pool hustler, mapping complex constellations on the dark felt, setting gleaming images into spinning motion, then sinking each whirling sphere into a corner pocket."Donna Seaman, Booklist

Eleanor Lerman has been a Chinese museum guide, a harpsichord kit workshop manager, and a comedy writer. She has received a National Book Award nomination and an NEA grant. She lives in New York.
