About the Author:

Bruce Andrews is "a performance artist and poet whose texts are some of the most radical of the Language school; his poetry tries to cast doubt on each and every 'natural' construction of language" (The Oxford Companion to Twentieth Century Literature in English). Andrews is a founding editor of the legendary journal L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E, which catalyzed the eponymous poetry movement that emerged in the 1970s and '80s. His many books include Lip Service, Give 'Em Enough Rope, Designated Heartbeat, Ex Why Zee, Tizzy Boost, and I Don't Have Any Paper So Shut Up (or, Social Romanticism).

From Publishers Weekly:

With Charles Bernstein, Andrews cofounded the seminal journal L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E. His book I Don't Have Any Paper, So Shut Up (or, Social Romanticism), some of which first appeared in the mid-1980s, is a major poetic text of the late 20th century. This book pushes Andrews's synthetically disjointed ("Foreground blur-flowerable keyhole/ Crooner insect nosegay scam"), multiply ironic sensibility through a variety of forms over 21 pieces. Some recall Tizzy Boost (1993) in their open field juxtapositions ("half-blown to adulterate/ autocracy's body conjointly bed your deeds"), others contain unexpected shocks of tenderness: "only the impossible is intimate enough." The two last works make up half the book: the 25-part "Reverb Sallies," written for Andrews's partner and frequent collaborator, dancer and choreographer Sallie Silvers ("heart loge/ measuring distance out in time spoons") and "Definition," a striking tour de force: "Abandonment—publicity/ Air—as nausea's competitor/ America—a Beautician/ Arms—as clichés/ Atom—bullethole." Andrews continues to make poetry uncomfortable and beautiful. (Sept.)
