More about the readers
Kathleen Fraser's new book of poems is movable TYYPE. Robert Glück says, "Kathleen Fraser never takes a short cut. In movable TYYPE she asks again, What can a poem be and do?—hanging words in the sky, opening the process collectively, turning the page into an environment, an installation. Intimacy is wedded to abstraction, and form itself is only a holding place in this spinning world." She has published fourteen poetry collections and seven limited-edition artist books in collaboration with American painters. Fraser has also been a seminal influence in Bay Area poetry, a director of The Poetry Center and founder of The American Poetry Archives at San Francisco State University and co-founder and editor of HOW(ever) , a journal for innovative women poets and scholarship restoring the works of modernist women poets.
Laura Walker's new book of poems is Follow-Haswed. Kathleen Fraser says, "Laura Walker's poems take us directly to the prescient heart of poetry.…Her poems begin at Follow and pull through to Haswed, [from Vol. VI of the Oxford English Dictionary], with precarious tipping forward into found meanings.…This is an unforgettable book in the highest tradition of break-through art." Walker's previous collections are bird book, rimertown/an atlas, and swarm lure.
