Miriam Sagan brings the strength of her curiosity, a refreshing coldness, and an expansive awareness of history - personal, ancient, and scientific - to her encounter with her own mortality in this moving collection, Thanks for Stopping By.

After receiving a frightening diagnosis, Sagan tracks the shifting moods of a life lived near death: its pleasures and amusements, irritations and confusions. Here love, family, memory, travel, and the unfathomable quotidian unfold alongside her contemplation of dying. These beautiful and often funny poems send reports from the border of life and death, a border we're all traveling towards.


Miriam Sagan is the author of over thirty books of poetry, fiction, and memoir. She works with text and sculptural installation as part of creative duo Maternal Mitochondria (with Isabel Winson-Sagan). Her poetry has been set to music for the Santa Fe Women's Chorus, incised on stoneware for haiku pathways, and projected as video inside abandoned buildings.
