The Sleep Hotel

Winner of the 2009 FIELD Poetry Prize, The Sleep Hotel is Amy Newlove Schroeder’s first collection. This book is packed with surprising and courageous poems that are, by turns, dreamlike, sinister, visionary, and erotically charged. Her work maps the psychic life of contemporary America with unerring precision.
