East Bay native Lee Foust relocated to San Francisco at the tender age of 20 to study creative writing at SFSU. Abandoning both the city and his studies, Lee traveled to Europe, a novel idea in his head. He fell in love with a fugitive Finn and the city of Rome. Later he studied in Florence, Italy, and New York City, obtained a Ph.D., wed a well known rock critic, and co-edited Resister magazine. Washing again upon Tuscan shores, Lee re-married and fathered a child. Nowadays he rents in Florence with partner Debra A. Zeller, teaches, and recites his own works, with and without banging a drum, to anyone who’ll listen.
