A writer who combines keen precision and intense emotion, [Erica] Funkhouser's work is more popular than ever. Last month she became one of 189 artists, scholars, and scientists to win a prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship. According to the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, the winners will receive about $40,000 each to develop their craft.[...]After earning degrees from Vassar and Stanford, she settled in Boston and started submitting her poems to large publications. In the mid-'70s, she sent two unsolicited poems to The Paris Review, a literary magazine that introduced Philip Roth and Jack Kerouac. Funkouser's poems were published.'It was a big deal,' she says.
