Noor Naga for "The Mistress and the Ping" 2017 RBC Bronwen Wallace Award finalist

Jury Citation

“The Mistress and the Ping” is constructed from exhilarating, mile-a-minute prose poems that are fresh, provocative, and often funny. These visceral pieces take surprising hairpin turns, pulling the reader through proclamations, inquiries, and bursts of self-doubt. Noor Naga achieves all this with a language that is rich and sensory, and a visually rigid structure that counter-intuitively unfolds to allow a multiplicity of pacing and play.
