Slease Reviews Marcus's Reading

He's done it again -- one of my favorite reading reporters reviewed his own reading. Thanks, Marcus -- it was a terrific reading, and his report is really insightful. The part about young contemporary writers imitating early Raworth and Marcus's renegotiation of that tendency in himself was apparent in the reading Saturday night. Phew -- what a long sentence.

Anyhoo, enjoy the review -- thanks again, Marcus -- and if anybody is willing to help do the computer part of it, I can put all these great readings up on the web someday......

Coming soon:

October 8th: Brent Cunningham & Tessa Joseph

October 22nd: John Taggart & Randall Williams

November 12th: Sarah Manguso & Julian Semilian
