Carly Sachs teaches creative writing at George Washington University. Her work was included in Best American Poetry 2004. The Steam Sequence offers a journey into the mind of a Holocaust survivor in which past becomes present and a single woman struggles to locate herself. This book asks us to examine the silences and the spaces between memory and reality.

“Breath, body, water, even wire seem unlikely candidates for eternal presence. But something that those name in this poem—a ‘story’ of inexplicable substance—will last forever.” —Lyn Hejinian.
