Dana Levin’s fifth book is Now Do You Know Where You Are (Copper Canyon, 2022), a New York Times Editors’ Choice. Recent books include Banana Palace and Sky Burial, which The New Yorker called “utterly her own and utterly riveting.” Her poems and essays have appeared in Best American Poetry, The New York Times, Poetry, and The Yale Review, among other publications. She is a grateful recipient of honors from the NEA, PEN, the Library of Congress, and the Rona Jaffe, Whiting, and Guggenheim Foundations. Levin serves as distinguished writer in residence at Maryville University in St. Louis. Now Do You Know Where You Are is a companion, walking with the reader through the disorientations of personal and collective transformation. It investigates how great change calls the soul out of the old lyric “to be a messenger – to record whatever wanted to stream through.” Levin works in various forms, calling on beloveds and ancestors, great thinkers, and religions – convened by Levin’s own spun-of-light wisdom and intellectual hospitality – balancing clear-eyed forensics of the past with vatic knowledge of the future.
