Attention Span 2009 – Alli Warren
Suzanne Stein | Hole In Space | OMG! | 2009
The poet’s body as a public communication sculpture.
David Larsen, trans. | Names of the Lion | Atticus/Finch | 2009
A pleasure to finally see this text in print after David’s jaw-dropping performance at the Unitarian Center in San Francisco, 2007.
Robert Fitterman | Rob the Plagiarist | Roof Books | 2009
“Why listen to my gut when I could listen to thousands of guts?”
David Brazil & Sara Larsen, eds. | Try | 2008-2009
AKA “Try!” Together with Dodie & Kevin’s “Mirage Periodical,” this little stapled, xeroxed magazine owns the Bay Area. It’s an INDUSTRY.
Lisa Robertson | The Men: A Lyric Book | Book Thug | 2006
“The funny pathos of men – I salute this.” I keep returning to this little lyric book.
Brandon Brown | The Poems Of Gaius Valerius Catullus 1-60 | Unpublished | 2009
Catullus is envious.
Abner Jay | One Man Band | Subliminal Sounds | 2003
Jay traveled around the South in a mobile home and performed as the (self-described) “last working Southern black minstrel.” Hilarious and heartbreaking.
Stephen Rodefer | Four Lectures | The Figures | 1981
News to me. Killed me. Continues to kill me.
Anne Boyer | Art Is War | Mitzvah Chaps | 2008
A new world treatise. Includes the smash hit “Difficult Ways to Publish Poetry.”
Bill Luoma | When the Pathogenic Wind Comes | Unpublished
The looping–“with crooked spring and great pouring”–is trance-making.
John Cassavetes | Films | 1959-1977
Especially “A Woman Under the Influence” and “Faces”—Gena Rowlands is my one true love.
