MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Christopher Buckley's new book of poems is Star Journal: Selected Poems. Philip Levine said, "The poems are modest, straightforward, intensely lyrical, and totally accessible. This is a humble poetry of great truths and profound emotions.…" He's published twenty books of poetry and three memoirs. He's also the editor of six poetry anthologies, including Bear Flag Republic: Prose Poems and Poetics from California and The Geography of Home: California's Poetry of Place, both co-edited with Gary Young, and critical books on the poets Larry Levis, Philip Levine, and Omar Luis Salinas. Among his honors are a Guggenheim Fellowship, two National Endowment for the Arts grants, a Fulbright Award, and four Pushcart prizes.
Gary Young's most recent book of poems is Even So: New and Selected Poems; his new chapbook is Adversary. His other poetry collections include Hands, Days, The Dream of a Moral Life (winner of the James D. Phelan Award), Braver Deeds (winner of the Peregrine Smith Poetry Prize), No Other Life (winner of the William Carlos Williams Award), and Pleasure. Jane Hirshfield says, "Gary Young has honed a sinuous, brief prose poem form that carries a flavor uniquely his own—unflinching, stringent in beauty, austerely moving." Co-editor of two anthologies with Christopher Buckley, Gary Young is also a widely exhibited book artist. His other honors as a poet include a William Carlos Williams Award from the Poetry Society of America, two National Endowment for the Arts grants, a Pushcart Prize, and the Shelley Memorial Award from Poetry Society of America. He teaches creative writing and directs the Cowell Press at UC Santa Cruz.
