Multiversal by Amy Catanzano has been awarded the 2010 PEN USA Literary Award in Poetry.

“Amy Catanzano offers us a poetic vision of multiple orders and multiple forms, of a fluid time set loose from linearity and an open space that is motile and multidimensional.”—Michael Palmer, from the Foreword
