About his work, David Kirby in The New York Times Sunday Book Review has written: “his poems are drunk on both word and allusion and are therefore doubly tipsy … The result is a poetry as lush as any of Keats’s odes, as textured as a corridor in the Louvre.” His poems, essays and interviews have appeared in A Public Space, Boston Review, Conjunctions, Fence, Los Angeles Review of Books, and elsewhere.
 
He teaches creative writing and literature at Rutgers University, The New School and New York University. In August 2014, with poets Timothy Donnelly and Dorothea Lasky he will direct The Ashbery Home School in Hudson, New York. He lives in the East Village in Manhattan.
