Thanks to the phenomenal production work of Tod Thilleman at Spuyten Duyvil Press and to the exceptionally talented Thuy-Vân Vu, who contributed the cover image, Burn Lyrics is taking shape. Laura Kasischke, Craig Santos Perez, A. Van Jordan and Monica Youn provided generous descriptions of this work, snippets of which you can read here. This has been a wild ride, beginning with my obsessive reading and re-reading of Sappho’s fragments (as translated by Anne Carson in If Not, Winter), followed by months of percolation and dreaming. You can get a copy of the end result in August, 2016.
