Out of Nowhere

Susan Comninos ’89

Published by an imprint of Texas A&M University Press, Comninos’s debut poetry collection touches on a wide variety of topics, both solemn and otherwise—from a meditation on childlessness to a fantasy about a group of nudists visiting the Louvre. The book, her publisher says, “uses beautiful imagery and complicated literary forms to explore what it means to be a woman [and] a daughter, and above all what it means to be human. . . . This timely collection carries themes of bodies and human connection as it winds through the diverse and varied characters and settings. Comninos brings a feminist, relevant voice to the old themes of love, loss, and finding beauty in broken people.” Comninos’s poetry has appeared in such venues as Harvard Review Online, Rattle, the Common, Prairie Schooner, and North American Review.
