Personal Favorites

What I'm Reading Now:
The Abundance of Nothing by Bruce Weigl, Bewilderment by David Ferry, Quick Question by John Ashbery, Bye and Bye by Charles Wright, Stag's Leap by Sharon Olds
Favorite Books:
Too many to list. But some recently recurring ones are When Things Fall apart, by Pema Chödrön, and Bye and Bye, by Charles Wright. Wright's book can be read more than once, as a great long meditation. Well worth the time.
Favorite Authors:
Again, too many to list, but some recurring voices are Mark Strand, Charles Wright, James Tate, Robert Bly, Lydia Davis, Vijay Seshadri, Brenda Hillman. There are more, of course
