I am very proud of my partner, Eleanor Catton, whose forthcoming novel, The Luminaries, was just longlisted for the 2013 Man Booker Prize!

All sources indicate that this year's judges have selected a suite of bold, experimental, and sophisticated novels.

The Luminaries will launch in NZ next weekend and in the UK and US soon to follow.

Stay tuned!

ARK / Trilogy

Because of the efforts of dedicated poets, editors, and families, two significant works of post-war American poetry will soon be back in print.

Ronald Johnson's monumental ARK will appear from Flood Editions later this autumn and Frank Samperi's ikonic Trilogy will be soon to follow from Skysill Press.

I am confident that the re-release of these two masterworks will only magnify the already considerable  enterprise underway in American poetry toward spiritual renew within a larger context of formal experimentation.
