Lolette Kuby

Lolette Kuby landed in Canada in 1999 after quitting her job at the English department of the Cleveland State University. During her first year in Toronto, she taught at Humber College. Her full-length collection of poems, Set Down Here came out in 2002, and another collection, Inwit, appeared in 2003. Her other books include An Uncommon Poet for the Common Man: A Study of Philip Larkin's Poetry, and Faith and the Placebo Effect: An Argument for Self-healing.

Her first collection of short stories, Out of Cleveland was released in April 2007 by Vehicule Press.

Capable of both humorous self-deprecation and bitter sarcasm, Kuby’s heroines pursue the truth with a resilient curiosity. Kuby is a member of PEN America.
