This week we welcome Bruce F. Kawin as our guest blogger. Although he published chapbooks in 1964 (Breakwater) and 1970 (Slides), Bruce did not publish a book of poems until 2012, when Thames River Press (London) brought out Love If We Can Stand It. He has also published nine more or less scholarly books on literature and film, of which the most recent is Selected Film Essays and Interviews (Anthem Press, 2013), as well as the last seven editions of Gerald Mast's A Short History of the Movies.
