from Shira Dentz’ black seeds on a white dish (Shearsman Books, 2010).
Thrilled to return to incoming 2014-2015 HB Frank Visiting Writers Series author Dentz’ black seeds on a white dish in the ENG 2530: Cultures of Attention course that Kirsten Jorgenson and I are team-teaching at ASU this summer.
Feel very lucky to have snuck out for coffee to sit down with Hank Lazer’s Elegies & Vacations (Salt Publishing, 2004) again this morning. It’s one of the best books I’ve ever read and I’m continually in awe of the suspension between its precision and the shaky resonances of its tenderness/ heartbreak. Its returns are more and more generous every time I go back.

Thanks for turning me onto this, Mike!
