Other Voices, Other Lives
Other Voices, Other Lives: A Grace Cavalieri Collection is a selection of poems, plays, and interviews drawn from over forty years of work by one of America’s most beloved and influential women of letters. The author of 23 books of poetry and 26 produced plays, and the founder of the legendary radio interview program, The Poet and the Poem, Grace Cavalieri has won multiple national awards for her writing and her service to literature. She currently resides in Annapolis, Maryland.
In preparing this, the second ASP Legacy volume, the author has worked closely with the editor, hand-picking her most beloved poems, plays, and interviews for inclusion here. Her empathy, charm, and sophisticated wit are preserved and presented in this volume by way of ASP’s signature deckle edges and French folds, and by the included art of her late husband who drew a series of sketches he called “waiting for Grace.” It is bound, printed, and edited with the scrutiny demanded by a piece of art. In this way, Other Voices, Other Lives is an appropriate and necessary celebration of Cavalieri’s accomplishments, and a testimony to the power and range of her work.
On Other Voices, Other lives
This book represents a lifetime achievement in the literary arts. Grace Cavalieri has the Midas touch and every genre she touches turns to gold. And as the very last line of the book says, ‘love is the bed of gold we lie on.’ –Richard Harteis, President of The William Meredith Foundation
Cavalieri’s contributions to American letters cannot be understated, and this collection showcases the eye and the ear of a poet and playwright, as well as her role of provocateur and reviewer with the Library of Congress. –Stephen Scott Whittaker, Literary Review Editor for Broadkill Review
The poet Grace Cavalieri is a…truly generous friend of poetry and poets. In her writing and all she does her large-minded generosity shines. –Robert Pinsky, US Poet Laureate 1995
