More about the readers
Lynn Emanuel's new book of poems is Noose and Hook. David St. John says, "I have long believed that Lynn Emanuel is one of the most innovative and subversive poets now writing in America…The brilliant, shattering, and disturbing poems of Noose and Hook are…compelling signposts to what yet might be possible in our future." The author of three previous books of poems, including her seminal Then Suddenly—, she has been included in the Pushcart Prize anthology, Best American Poetry, and The Oxford Book of American Poetry.

Paul Hoover's new book of poems is Sonnet 56, which consists of fifty-six variations on Shakespeare's fifty-sixth sonnet. He has published many books of poems, the two most recent being Edge and Fold and Poems in Spanish. His book of essays, Fables of Representation, was published in 2004. He is the editor of the Norton anthology Postmodern American Poetry, and with his wife Maxine Chernoff he edits the literary journal New American Writing.
