« Beethoven and My Father | Main | The Best American Poetry 2011: "The core of what it is to be human" »

December 17, 2011


This is what books should be like now. Non-linear, but linear, multi-faceted but focused, engaging, and broad, and the photos of the poets, was cool because it helped me put faces to poets. I don't have time to read all of these poets but will track down a few I saw this week. Dawn and Fanny surely. But this series was real cool. I think the great thing was the series said a lot about you as a writer though all you did was ask questions and the writers responded.

Stunning poems. Thank you for this!

Thanks, Jericho, for all of this-Leslie McGrath is RIGHT, you are a fine interviewer (and presenter of new poems to me) as well as a fine poet... I think there are many like me who, having been presented with a week's worth of rich material, will enjoy your postings for months to come. Thanks and give SF a big kiss for me. But, you know, not in a gay way or anything. BB

Thanks so much, Brian. I mean for this week's posts to say everything about me as a writer.

Thank you for reading, Susan.

Thanks, Brian.
