More Weekend Excitement
I'm willing to take corrections (poetry at fsgbooks.com) on this, but I am pretty sure that Cross-Cultural Poetics is the hardest-working poetry radio show around these parts.
That link will take you to a list of all of the shows Leonard Schwartz has conducted since 1993--and it's an impressive list. In addition to FSG greats Frank Bidart and Lydia Davis, I'd recommend the interviews with Rick Simonson, Chris Abani (whose novel Virgin of Flames I devoured in one sitting last week and heartily recommend), and W. S. Merwin, although it's definitely worth your time to look through all the interviews to find one your favorite poet.
If you're anything like me, that ought to hold you through your cleaning, coffee drinking,
cat training, reading-filled Saturday.
