Among his many books are Give ‘Em Enough Rope, Getting Ready To Have Been Frightened, I Don’t Have Any Paper So Shut Up (or Social Realism), and, most recently, Lip Service. Andrews’ poetry has been called “a brilliant kaleidoscope of social-sexual-political realities” in our time and “a vast cacophony of self-presentation idioms.” Andrews teaches political science at Fordham University in New York.

February 18, 2004 - JOAN LARKIN

Joan Larkin’s poetry collections are Housework, A Long Sound, Sor Juana’s Love Poems (co-translated with Jaime Manrique), and Cold River.

Larkin was also a co-editor of the ground-breaking anthologies Amazon Poetry and Lesbian Poetry (with Elly Bulkin) and Gay and Lesbian Poetry in our Time (with Carol Morse). Her anthology of coming out stories, A Woman Like That, was nominated for the Publishing Triangle and Lambda Awards for nonfiction in 2000.
