Description - Blood Dazzler by Patricia Smith
Smith's near-constant touring has taken her from the Sorbonne in Paris to Carnegie Hall, and from Lollapalooza to HBO. Now gaining literary recognition for her work on the page, Smith's 2006 collection, Teahouse of the Almighty, received the Paterson Poetry Prize and the first-ever Hurston / Wright Legacy Award in the poetry category. Blood Dazzler-with its heartrending, minute-by-minute docudrama of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath-should reach beyond poetry fans and become a favorite of booksellers and book clubs.
