More about the readers
Gloria Frym's new book of poetry is Mind over Matter. Rae Armantrout asks, "How does the present imprint itself on language, on poetry? Gloria Frym's Mind over Matter shows us that: the outlines of the endless wars, the credit default swaps. But it also shows poetry resisting this…This book makes me want to cheer." Frym is both a poet and a short story writer; her books of poems include Homeless at Home and By Ear; her story collections include Distance No Object and How I Learned. She teaches at California College of the Arts.

Donna de la Perrière's second book of poems is Saint Erasure. Donald Revell says, "in Saint Erasure, we may witness, with the leisure of true virtue, poetry's essential miracle.ŠThe curve of a cheekbone becomes eternal love, and memory an ocean. Here is a radiant palimpsest. Here is vision awash in vision itself." She teaches at California College of the Arts and San Francisco State University and curates the Bay Area Poetry Marathon.

Joseph Lease's new book is Testify. Julie Carr says, "Šhe is one of the few writers I have ever read who unveils the deeply personal in the political. We are his grateful readers, for we need this book now." He is also the author of Broken World, Human Rights, and The Room. His poems have been featured on NPR and published in or selected for The AGNI 30th Anniversary Poetry Anthology, VQR, Bay Poetics, Paris Review, The Best American Poetry, and the forthcoming Postmodern American Poetry: A Norton Anthology (second edition). He chairs the MFA Program in Writing at California College of the Arts.
