Synopsis: Michael Palmer has bee hailed by John Ashbery as exemplarily radical and by The Village Voice as the most influential avant-gardist working, and perhaps the greatest poet of his generation. His new book, Company of Moths--a collection in four parts, Stone, Scale, Company of Moths, and Dream -- is beautiful, and fierce: bright archive, sad merriment, question pursuing question. Palmer, in this new volume for our darkest times, asks, How will you now read in the dark?

About the Author: Michael Palmer was born in New York City in 1943. The recipient of many awards including two grants from the NEA, and a Guggenheim Fellowship, he won the 2001 Shelley Memorial Prize. He is often published in such magazines as Conjunctions, The Chicago Review, Fulcrum, and New American Writing. Palmer's work has been translated into over twenty-five languages. He presently lives in San Francisco, California.
