Ron Silliman, author of poets of the New American Poetry—the Beats, Black Mountain, the New York School—reading Richard Krech is going to feel just like coming home. He’s too young to have been a Beat, really, but from the mid-1960s right up to this present moment, he has lived the dream—and, for good measure, been a criminal defense lawyer in Oakland for much of this time.

There is a crinkly sense of humor here as well—it makes for great reading and a deep record of our time.”
