« The Limits of Palmistry [from a conversation with David Shapiro] | Main | Poem: "In the Brevoort Hotel..." (by Mitch Sisskind) »

August 24, 2009


Thank you for the tip, Ken. Never before have I heard of a novel with a poetry anthologist as a protagonist. And one with writer's block no less. Luckily it is not an affliction I suffer from: BAP 2009 is about to come out -- with, I reckon, the 23rd foreword I've written since the series began. Can't wait to read Baker's new book.
