Graham Foust Reading Aboard The Drunken Boat

By Harriet Staff


We're not the only ones curious about how poets get their read on. Over at the Drunken Boat, Graham Foust is dishing out titles he's been reading lately. For instance:

While the retrograde formalist in me resists the idea of biographies, I do tend to read a lot of them. I’ve got two going right now: Hiding Man, Tracey Daugherty’s biography of Donald Barthelme, and Lady Painter, Patricia Albers’s biography of Joan Mitchell, both of which manage to do the difficult work of “telling” a life quite well.

What else? Well, he's reading poems by Lorine Niedecker, Jane Gregory, and Paul Killebrew. We love it!
