Author of A Little Book of Lies and No Longer Time, poet Phyllis Hotch offers stunning poems in her new book, 3 A.M. In her ninth decade, she writes about the past, the present, her husbands diagnosis of Alzheimers, and what the future offers. And what an elegant book it is! In her introduction, Marjorie Agosín writes: 3 A.M., the time of insomniacs and poets, is a collection of evocative and mysterious poems, a profound journey into the realm of dreams. It is a book that speaks of the altered mind, due to aging and disease, as well as a book that celebrates the sacredness of being alive, of reflecting about solitude and beauty, landscape and renewal.

Phyllis Hotch was born in New York City and maintains that give-away sound. She raised a family and taught English in Massachusetts before finding home in Taos, New Mexico. As Poetry Coordinator for Arts/Wayland, a creative arts center, she organized readings, seminars, and workshops, and she supervised competitions for publication of poetry manuscripts. Poets and manuscript judges she was privileged to work with included Denise Levertov, Edward Hirsch, Louis Hyde, and Robin Becker. In Taos, Hotch served on the Board of Directors of SOMOS (Society of the Muse of the Southwest) and as president for 14 of the 22 years. She worked to bring PEN to New Mexico to be a voice for censored and imprisoned writers. In addition, she coordinated events in support of endangered and disappeared writers in Latin America; weekly readings of Poets for Peace in the months before the Iraq invasion; and two programs to bring attention to the Murdered Women of Juarez. Hotch initiated programs, which SOMOS maintains, to offer partners for the homebound and a vibrant Youth Mentorship Program that has lasted for two decades.
