Allison Hedge Coke came of age working in fields, water, and factories, and her work combines musicality and vivid imagery to reveal profound truths of culture, class, and the fragility of the human condition. Winner of the American Book Award for her first collection of poetry, Dog Road Woman (1997), she currently holds the Reynolds Chair of Creative Writing at the University of Nebraska Kearney and is on the visiting faculty of MFA programs at the University of California, Riverside and Naropa University.
