Poetry. "Valerie Fox's idiosyncratic and often hilarious poems, with their playful shifts of syntax and thought, are shadowed over by a mysterious grace.. [Here is] a guide to seeing the world in a new and brilliant way. This is a poetry of multiple pleasures and surprises, rigorous to the core yet forever blissful"-Lewis Warsh. Fox has lived and traveled around the world, teaching at several colleges and universities including Sophia University in Tokyo, Japan. She is a founding co-editor of 6ix. She is currently Visiting Professor in the Department of English and Philosophy at Drexel University in her home state of Pennsylvania and now resides in New Jersey.
