Alice Friman

p10008713Alice Friman’s The Book of the Rotten Daughter contains “astonishing poems which fearlessly jump into hell and out again, that resent or forgive,” writes poet Marianne Boruch, “poems which wryly, exactly and so richly honor the world of the living.”  Her eight poetry collections includes The Book of the Rotten DaughterZoo, and Inverted Fire; her ninth, Vinculum, is forthcoming from Louisiana State University Press in 2011.

Professor Emerita at the University of Indianapolis, Friman has been awarded fellowships and residencies from the Indiana Arts Commission, the Arts Council of Indianapolis, the MacDowell and Yaddo colonies, and the Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest. Like George Singleton a steady contributor to The Georgia Review, Friman is currently poet-in-residence at Georgia College and State University in      Milledgeville.
