Memory Future
by Heather Aimee O\'Neill, Winner of the 2010 Gold Line Press Poetry Chapbook Competition
 
 
Author Biography   Book Description  

Heather Aimee O’Neill teaches creative writing at CUNY Hunter College of New York and is the Assistant Director of the Sackett Street Writers’ Workshop. She writes a book column, Across the Page, for MTV’s AfterEllen.com and lives in Brooklyn with her partner and their son.

 

“We’ll leave behind a language, travel back”, says Heather Aimee O’Neill in a poem from “Memory Future”, locating the ghost of Jeanette Winterson’s “..memory past, memory future” precisely in these lyrical remembrances of what has not yet come full circle. The trajectory forward into memory is the path of the imagination — these fiercely delicate poems prove what we already knew: that remembering and imagining are one.”
