About the author:

Sparrow created quite a stir in 1995 when he picketed The New Yorker magazine, holding a placard reading, "My Poetry is as bad as yours." His poetry has since appeared in that magazine as well as The Quarterly, The New York Times and other erudite journals. He was also featured in the PBS series The United States of Poetry and can be heard, along with his legendary band Foamola, on the poetry compilation Poemfone: New Word Order (Tomato). He is a gossip columnist for the Phoenicia Times, a contributing editor to Chronogram, a substitute teacher, and the author of two books: Yes, You ARE a Revolutionary! Plus Seven Other Books and Republican Like Me (both Soft Skull Press). Sparrow lives with his wife and daughter in the hamlet of Phoenicia, New York, in the Catskill Mountains.Marcus Boon (editor) specializes in contemporary literature and theory. He is the author of The Road of Excess: A History of Writers on Drugs (Harvard UP, 2002) which was called "an impressive display of scholarship" by the Boston Globe and a "valuable, philosophically provocative and sometimes quite moving work of literary criticism" by the Denver Post. He writes about music and sound for The Wire and is an Assistant Professor of English at York University in Toronto, Canada.
