Lucie Brock-Broido's latest collection, Stay, Illusion, has been shortlisted for the National Book Award in poetry.

Lucie Brock-Broido, Fine Arts Work Center Writing Fellow 1982-83, was born in Pittsburgh, was educated at Johns Hopkins and Columbia University, and has taught at Bennington, Princeton, Harvard (where she was a Briggs-Copeland poet), and Columbia. She is the recipient of fellowships from the NEA and the Guggenheim Foundation, as well as awards from the American Poetry Review and the Academy of American Arts and Letters. Her poetry collections, A Hunger (1988), The Master Letters (1995), Trouble in Mind (2004), and Stay, Illusion (2013), often explore obsessions and anxieties (of influence, ritual, mortality, and modernity), and use whatever is available to create vivid, sometimes disorienting, portraits of mind.
