Jehanne Dubrow is the author of six poetry collections, including most recently The Arranged Marriage and Red Army Red and is the co-editor of Still Life with Poem and The Book of Scented Things. Her poetry, creative nonfiction, and book reviews have appeared in Southern Review, The New England Review, Pleiades, and Copper Nickel.

Moving between the languages of love and war, Jehanne Dubrow’s latest book offers valuable testimony to the experiences of military wives. Frequently employing rhyme, meter, and traditional forms, these poems examine what it means to be both a military spouse and an academic, straddling two communities that speak in very different and often conflicting terms.
