Rebecca Foust

Rebecca FoustRebecca Foust was the 2014 Dartmouth Poet in Residence and is the recipient of fellowships from the Frost Place and the MacDowell Colony. Her fifth book, Paradise Drive, won the 2015 Press 53 Award for Poetry and will be released in April. About it Thomas Lux says “sonnet after sonnet is masterful. Not since Berryman’s Henry have I been so engaged by a persona,” and Molly Peacock says, “Foust drives her Keatsian sensibility straight into the 21st soldiers and syringes, booze and valet parking, determined to prove that truth makes beauty.” For more information, visit Paradise Drive can be ordered at
