More about the readers
Let Me Open You a Swan is Deborah Bogen's second book of poems. Lynn Emanuel says of it, "The sharp intelligence of these poems manifests itself in muscular analogies and in images that bristle with complexity. Beauty is everything in this book…" Her first collection, Landscape with Silo won the 2005 X.J. Kennedy Poetry Prize.

Gerald Fleming's new book of poems is Night of Pure Breathing. Gary Young says, "These dark fables, written in a language 'born of rage,' furiously peel back the veneer of the world we think we know. Part fairy tale, part dream, these poems explore a region where the ordinary and the fantastic overlap.…" Fleming's first book is Swimmer Climbing Onto Shore. He edited and published the literary magazine Barnabe Mountain Review; a teacher in San Francisco public schools for thirty-seven years, he's published three books for teachers.
