"Lynn Strongin's poems flame up with energy, humor, and a fierce resistance to life's anguish. Her language sings. She writes for all of us, but especially for those who, like her, have suffered more than a common share of pain."James LeCuyer, poet and teacher

Strongin

Born in New York City at the end of the 'dirty thirties', Lynn Strongin grew up as a musical child with a psychologist father and freelance artist mother. Following her parents' divorce in the mid nineteen-forties when this was still not widespread, the second trauma of her childhood was contracting polio at age twelve. However, this allowed her to develop a gift for introspection. After studying musical composition, she went on to take a graduate degree in American literature and poetry at Stanford University. She is now totally devoting her life to poetry. She has written extensively about polio, the war years, and post-war life in her autobiography; INDIGO: An American Jewish Childhood. Her book SPECTRAL FREEDOM was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in literature. She has made British Columbia, Canada, her home for the past thirty years, but still considers herself an American voice. Other subjects important to her are the American South, women’s freedom, and the injustices done to girls and women in such institutions as the Magdalene Laundries.
