MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Willis Barnstone’s new book of poems is Moonbook and Sunbook. Andrei Codrescu says, “Willis Barnstone’s new book is a magnetic miracle that draws the solar and lunar magic of his immense learning into the space of marvelous poems. His language joins the mysteries of the sky with the enigmas of the heart in a music unmistakably his own.” He is a poet, memoirist, scholar and translator of the moderns and the ancients, author or editor of more than seventy books over six decades of publishing. He’s been nominated four times for the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry.
David Koehn’s new book of poetry is Twine, winner of the 2013 May Sarton New Hampshire Poetry Prize. Arthur Sze says, “‘A shadow of light passes through the room like a shark,’ writes David Koehn in this marvelous debut. In taut, fine-spun lines, these poems move through space with insight and verve.” Koehn’s poetry and translations were previously collected in two chapbooks, Tunic, a collection of his translations of Catullus, and Coil, winner of the Midnight Sun Chapbook Contest. His work has been widely published in literary journals, including VOLT, Painted Bride, The New York Quarterly, and New Millennium Writings.
