In its journey through the "anti-miracle" of Europe's embattled past,The Crossed-Out Swastikafollows the lives of historical and semi-fictional characters to unearth and amplify moments of almost impossible music, bravery, beauty, and redemption, illuminating the human spirit against unspeakable tyranny.Poet, from cellar to cellar, I rememberI held onto, of all things,a picture book about a magical goat,inscribed by my witty father:This storybook belongsto Mademoiselle Sabinethe way Paris once belongedto Marie Antoinette—Somehow having that bookhelped me to endure . . .Cyrus Cassellsgrew up in the Mojave Desert.

Previously a teacher at the College of the Holy Cross and Northwestern University, Cassells has received the Peter I.B. Lavan Younger Poet Award of the Academy of American Poets and fellowships from the Lannan Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts. In 1994, Cassells's second volume of poems, titled Soul Makes a Path Through Shouting, was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. The book of poems was awarded the Poetry Society of America's William Carlos Williams Award, which honors works published by small, non-profit, or university presses.
