    Anne Waldman has dedicated her life to the art. No false careerism here! The art is too important. Here's a little thing I wrote about this book quite a while ago: https://annarborobserver.com/articles...

    I am only about half-way through this book, but I love it. I often choose to take this book with me on trips so I can enjoy an essay or interview on the plane or by the pool. The reading is a bit heavy, but it is a pleasure to read. Anne Waldman's love and dedication for poetry leaps off the page.
