MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Janet Hamill's new book of poems is Knock. Patti Smith says, "Janet Hamill's Knock is intensely visual and invigorating…This is an ambitious work, rich with unexpected juxtapositions—Casanova and the Huns, Rothko and Goat's Head Soup. A bounteous world into which we're drawn by one of our true poets." Among her six published books of poetry and fiction are Nostalgia of the Infinite, Lost Ceilings, Body of Water, and The Eternal Café. Widely published in literary journals, her work has been anthologized in Up Late: American Poetry Since 1970, Bowery Women Poems, and elsewhere. A strong proponent of spoken word, she's read at The Poetry Project at St. Marks Church, CBGB's Gallery, Seatle's Bumbershoot Festival, Patti Smith's Meltdown Festival in London, and many other festivals and venues. In collaboration with the band Lost Ceilings she's released two CDs of spoken word and music, Flying Nowhere and Genie of the Alphabet.
Cynthia Kraman's latest book of poems is The Touch. Bob Holman says, "The Touch, the long-awaited new book of poetry from medievalist and former punk-rocker Cynthia Kraman, tosses New Formalism on its ear, and its rock lyrics…resuscitate Wordsworth…a superb, extraordinary, shocking, unflinching, charming, hilarious, perfectly gem-cut book." Her first book, Taking on the Local Color, was the Wesleyan New Poets Selection for 1976. Other collections include Club 82 and The Mexican Murals. Published in such journals as The Paris Review and Open City, her poetry has been anthologized in Ordinary Women, New York: Poems, and Bowery Women: Poems. She is professor of English literature at the College of New Rochelle in New York.
