'The Babies' is a stunning collection, truly. Behind each of its delicate yet sturdy prose poems lies the conciet: how many babies would there be had the Holocaust never occured?

— Elizabeth


Funny and frightening, moving and unsettling, the prose poems in Mark’s debut collection take readers on a wild ride

The Babies, by Sabrina Orah Mark, is the premier winner of the Saturnalia Books Poetry Contest, judged by renowned poet Jane Miller (Memory at These Speeds: New and Selected Poetry). Of The Babies, poet Claudia Rankine writes, “Rarely do we encounter poems that are so precisely framed, though on their surface seemingly whimsical and erratic. These poems are gorgeous, intelligent, and disturbing.”
