Natalie Diaz is the author of two collections of poetry: When My Brother Was an Aztec and Postcolonial Love Poem. A winner of the MacArthur Foundation Genius Grant and Narrative Prize, Diaz’s poems have appeared in The New York Times, Poetry, The Iowa Review, and many other publications. In The New York Times Book Review, Eric McHenry writes, “Diaz grew up on the Fort Mojave Indian Reservation, where she now works with the last four fluent speakers of Mojave to save their fading language. On evidence in this beautiful book… her skill with metaphor owes much to her being a good listener.”
