MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Gerald Fleming's new book of poems is The Bastard and the Bishop. Pablo Medina says of it, "The Bastard and the Bishop" is an awakening. Socially incisive and psychologically illuminating, it presents us with a full range of human passion and emotion. You didn't know prose could sing, poetry could mean? Read The Bastard and the Bishop and see for yourself." Master of the prose poem, Fleming's previous collections are One, monosyllabic prose poems; The Choreographer; Night of Pure Breathing; and Swimmer Climbing onto Shore. He is also the editor of The Collected Poetry and Prose of Lawrence Fixel. A teacher in the San Francisco public schools for thirty-seven years, he's published books for teachers and edited literary magazines.

Julia B. Levine's new book of poems is Ordinary Psalms. Library Journal wrote of it, "A polished poet of extraordinary skill…Levine is caught between wholehearted love of the world's beauty and sorrow at its unavoidable misery and suffering." She's published four previous collections, the most recent of which, Small Disasters Seen in Sunlight, was the winner of the Northern California Book Award for Poetry. She also received a Discovery/The Nation Award and a Pablo Neruda Prize for Poetry from Nimrod. Her work has been widely published in journals such as Ploughshares, Prairie Schooner, and the Southern Review. She lives in Davis, California.
