About the author (1997)

Madelon Sprengnether is a poet, memoirist, and literary critic. She is Regents Professor of English at the University of Minnesota, where she teaches poetry, theory, and creative nonfiction. Sprengnether is the author of two books of poetry: The Normal Heart, which won the Minnesota Voices competition in the early 1980s, and THE ANGEL OF DULUTH; three memoirs, Rivers, Stories, Houses, Dreams, Crying at the Movies, and GREAT RIVER ROAD: MEMOIR AND MEMORY (New Rivers Press, 2015), in addition to numerous works of feminist psychoanalytic criticism. She also co-edited a collection of travel essays by women titled The House on Via Gombito.

C. W. Truesdale's passion for publishing and editing led him to create the New Rivers Press, a haven for fledgling poets. Truesdale's press began the Minnesota Voices Project, a literary competition for emerging authors, and the Many Minnesotas Project, which represented the works of diverse ethnic groups.
