Winner of the Prairie Schooner Book Prize in Poetry, "Adonis Garage" introduces a talent exquisitely keyed to the register of New York City's pulse and to the heartbeat of the day. Raw and graphic, with a brash and beautiful voice, Rynn Williams' poetry immerses us in disillusionment and desire and bears witness to the meaning of survival. Judith Ortiz Cofer called "Adonis Garage" 'a book of life written by someone who has lived honestly and passionately, and whose art has been mastered in order to bear witness and find meaning in each day'. Rynn Williams' poems are 'brutally frank, brutally beautiful, and sexy', said writer and critic Jonathan Holden. Rynn Williams is a poet living in Brooklyn. She has published work in "The Nation", "Massachusetts Review", "North American Review", "Prairie Schooner", and many other journals.
