Diane Wald is the author of Wonderbender (1913 Press, 2011), Yellow Hotel (Verse Press, 2002), Lucid Suitcase (Red Hen Press, 1999), as well as numerous chapbooks, including faustinetta, gegenschein, trapunto (Cervena Barva Press) and Improvisations on Titles of Works by Jean Dubuffet. Her awards include a two-year fellowship in poetry from the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, the Grolier Poetry Prize, The Denny Award, The Open Voice Award, the Anne Halley Poetry Prize, and a Massachusetts Artists Foundation grant. She works for animal welfare at the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Boston.
After decades of small-press and chapbook publishing (Wald's last collection, Lucid Suitcase, appeared from Red Hen in 1999), Wald offers not a debut so much as a comeback volume, and while she does participate in the jumpy humor common to much recent poets, she also acts out a kind of confidence that remains hers alone.
