Please join me and my fellow BLP authors for a weekend at the Brooklyn Book Festival. I will be reading and signing copies in support of my latest book, The Actual World.




I wish to thank Diane Goettel and everyone at Black Lawrence Press for believing in this book, and for all of their time and hard work publishing it. The Actual World is now available from Small Press Distribution, Amazon, Powell’s,  and other on-line retailers.

I also want to thank those of you who pre-ordered a copy and those of you who will purchase one in the future. I hope to see you at a reading soon!

Please contact me if you know of a local library or bookstore that might like to carry this title, or if you know someone interested in a review–or if you simply want to comment on the poems. I’d love to hear from you, and I very much appreciate your interest and support!
