Read full description of the books:
Coming on the heels of Sanchez's 1998 nominations for both the National Book Critics Circle and the NAACP Image Awards, Shake Loose My Skin covers over thirty years of work and is a testament to her literary, sensual, and political powers. Sanchez combines an ear for the rhythms of street speech with a sophisticated formal repertoire. She shifts with ease from a blues-inspired love poem to a political call to arms. She is a master of haiku, tanka, and even villanelle, but constantly reconstructs these and other forms with her unique poetic vision. Her world is one of hardship, violence, and oppression, but it is also one of passion, fortitude, and tenderness.

After her mother died in childbirth a year later, Sanchez lived with her paternal grandmother and other relatives for several years.

She earned a B.A. in political science from Hunter College in 1955. She also did postgraduate work at New York University and studied poetry with Louise Bogan.
