Eager for Edgar

Thanks so much for the Stephen Edgar feature! I’ve become a big fan of his work since discovering him not long ago in an issue of Poetry magazine. There’s not much info on him available here in the U.S., or even on the internet. His books are impossible to find here, too. I have his “Photography for Beginners” audio collection, and it’s nice to finally be able to see some of those pieces in print.

I really like the way you package interview, essay, review, and poems. It makes for a nice presentation. I especially enjoyed the interview.

Thanks again!
