MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Kim Addonizio's new book of poems is Mortal Trash. San Francisco Book Review says, "Kim Addonizio's voice lifts from the page, alive and biting…unleashing wit with a ruthless observation." Poet, fiction writer, and memoirist, she has a teeming resume: author of six previous poetry collections, including Tell Me, which was a National Book Award finalist, two novels, two books of short stories, a memoir, and two books on writing poetry, The Poet's Companion (with Dorianne Laux) and Ordinary Genius: A Guide for the Poet Within. Her honors include two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships, one from the Guggenheim Foundation, and two Pushcart Prizes.
Brendan Constantine's new book of poems is Dementia, My Darling. Amy Gerstler says it is "a suite of acute, beautiful poems about coming apart, slippage, love, emptying out, transformation, and carrying on. Every absurdly human moment in them is handled with smarts and just the right mix of inventiveness and delicacy.…Tender and humane and unsparing, the poems never surrender to despair." His previous collections are Letters to Guns, Birthday Girl with Possum, and Calamity Joe. He has received grants and commissions from the Getty Museum, the James Irvine Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts. He's a terrific performer; he has appeared on National Public Radio, many podcasts, and YouTube, as well as live across the U.S. and Europe.
