Sophie Cabot Black has three poetry collections from Graywolf Press which include The Misunderstanding of Nature, (Norma Farber First Book Award), and The Descent, (2005 Connecticut Book Award). Her third, The Exchange, received critical acclaim including a starred Publisher’s Weekly, and which All Things Considered reviewed as “the book for you”, and of which Billy Collins in the New York Times has said: ...she's concocted a way of speaking in poetry that's very fresh and daring."
