book cover If you enjoyed The Best of It by Kay Ryan, you may also enjoy delving into the work of some of the Bay Area’s other talented, contemporary poets:

 

book cover
Camille Dungy
Suck on the Marrow, a historical narrative set in mid-19th century Virginia and Philadelphia, traces the experiences of fugitive slaves, kidnapped Northern-born blacks, and free people of color.
book cover
Robin Ekiss
With disembodied dolls, dank Parisian catacombs, the gilded interior of a Fabergé egg, and the unfathomable edge of Niagara Falls as the dominion of these poems, reading Ekiss's work is like peering into the perfectly still world of a diorama or daguerreotype: an experience both uncanny and uncompromising.
book cover
Dean Rader
Emotionally and intellectually engaging, Dean Rader's debut collection of poetry undertakes provocative questions about identity in original, ambitious, and playful ways.
book cover
Brian Teare
Asserting the lover’s body as a lost Eden, revisiting again and again the narrative of "the fall," Pleasure records the eventual end of mourning and a return to the ecology not of myth but of the literal weather and landscape of California.
book cover
Matthew Zapruder
"Zapruder’s third collection of hip, quirkily haunting yet surprisingly earnest poems is his best and most beautiful. He spans the major genres-love poetry, elegy, ode, friendship tribute, to name a few-updating them for the 21st century." - Publishers Weekly
