More about the readers
Gary Young's newest book of poem is Pleasure. Jane Hirshfield calls him "…unflinching, stringent in beauty, austerely moving." He has won the William Carlos Williams Award from the Poetry Society of America. Among his other publications, No Other Life brings together his poetic trilogy Days, Braver Deeds, and If He Had. He is also a book artist whose work appears in the Museum of Modern Art and elsewhere.

Eliot Schain's most recent book of poems is Westering Angels about which D. Nurkse says, "Some artists have irony, some have vision; Schain has both, and tests them against each other with fire and wit." He is anthologized in Bear Flag Republic: Prose Poems and Poetics from California and The Place That Inhabits Us: Poems of the San Francisco Bay Watershed.
