Bialosky’s free verse poems explore themes of desire, domesticity, and myth. In an interview with the journal Identity Theory, Bialosky spoke to the role of personal experience in her work: “It's the point at which you leap from the personal into the imagination that I think that the process of art is made. The emotional life of any work tends to be autobiographical.”
Bialosky’s poetry collections include Intruder (2008), a finalist for the Paterson Poetry Prize; Subterranean (2001); and The End of Desire (1997). She has also written the novels The Life Room (2007) and House Under Snow (2002), and the memoir History of a Suicide: My Sister's Unfinished Life (2011). With Helen Schulman, Bialosky co-edited the anthology Wanting A Child (1998).
Her honors include the Elliot Coleman Award in Poetry. Bialosky is an editor at WW Norton & Company. She lives in New York City with her family.
