Saidenberg is the author of Mortal City (Parenthesis Writing
Series, 1998) and Immure (Double Lucy, 2001). Her newest book, CUSP,
winner of the Frances Jaffer Award, is just out from Kelsey St. Press. Barbara
Guest calls CUSP "a poem of exceptional sensibility and ardor."
Saidenberg has been key to Small Press Traffics continuing success:
a former board member, she also served as director from 1999-2000. She won
the New Langton Arts Bay Area Award in Literature in 1999 and founded Krupskaya
Publishing Collective in 1998, which has now published over a dozen gorgeous
and compelling books.
