Amy Uyematsu is an award-winning poet who by day switches from right to left brain to teach algebra and geometry in public high school. The result of her poetry-math life is a fascinating, far-flung but surprisingly connected book that interlinks mathematics, poetry, politics and spirit. Stone Bow Prayer is a remarkable journey in which--as one poem suggests--"Geometry Gets Mixed Up with God and the Alphabet," and the infinite and minute nurture one another.

Amy Uyematsu is a sansei (third-generation Japanese American), author of two books of poetry and the recipient of the prestigious Nicholas Roerich Poetry Prize. She co-edited Roots: An Asian American Reader, one of the first anthologies in Asian American studies. She lives near Los Angeles.
