In her latest collection of poetry, Katerina Stoykova-Klemer fearlessly probes the 'porcupine of mind,' the prickly defenses of the psyche, to lay bare the experiences of love and leaving, regret and discovery, severed roots and new possibilities, all from the perspective of an intellectually voracious and passionate wanderer between two languages and cultures. There are poems here that dazzle with inventiveness, as well as poems expressing such deep emotional honesty they catch the reader's breath.

Praise For…

"If you are a new reader of Katerina Stoykova-Klemer’s poetry, you are in for a delightful

experience. Those of us who have read her work know that Katerina’s poems are like no one

else’s; they are smart and weighty in subject, but as with the best poetry, full of lively play.

Opening The Porcupine of Mind is like sitting down with one of those people who provide the

best possible companionship. Readers, prepare for a rollicking good conversation, full of wit,

intellectual hooks, and winking flirtation."

Kathleen Driskell, author of Seed Across Snow
