, author of Mine: Essays (University of New Mexico, $19.95).

Sarah Viren is a Phoenix-based author and winner of the River Teeth Literary Nonfiction Book Prize and multiple other literary awards. In her debut essay collection, she considers the contingencies of ownership alongside the realities of loss. The book begins with an essay about being given a man's furniture while he's on trial for murder, then follows with essays that question corporeal, familial, and intellectual forms of ownership. What does it mean to believe that something belongs to you? What happens if you realize you're wrong? Mining her own life and those of others, Sarah Viren contemplates these questions and more with extraordinary wisdom and grace.
