MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Randall Mann’s most recent book of poems is Straight Razor. Richard Rayner of the Los Angeles Times calls it “Bawdy yet elegant poems depicting the debaucheries and traumas of growing up amid San Francisco’s gay scene…Craft and bravura mix well…Mann shows himself [Thom Gunn’s] apt pupil.” His two previous collections are Breakfast with Thom Gunn and Complaint in the Garden. His new collection, Proprietary, will be published in summer 2017.
Adrienne Su’s most recent book of poems is Living Quarters. Cate Marvin says, “Su’s approach is risky in its sheer honesty and fierce by way of simplicity.” Her previous collections are The Middle Kingdom, Sanctuary, and Having None of It. Her work has been anthologized in The New American Poets, The Pushcart Prize XXIV, and Asian-American Poetry: The Next Generation, and her honors, along with her Pushcart Prize, include a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship and residencies at the Fine Arts Works Center and The Frost Place. She teaches at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
