Lorrie Moore with Kate Moses, Conversation, 19 January 2011 – Video

Recorded at the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe, New Mexico on January 19, 2011.

Lorrie Moore is the author of the story collection Birds of America (described as “one of our funniest, most telling anatomies of human love and vulnerability” by The New York Times Book Review), Like Life, and Self-Help and the novels Who Will Run the Frog Hospital? and Anagrams. In her new novel, A Gate at the Stairs, Moore turns her eye to the anxiety and disconnection of post-9/11 America, on the insidiousness of racism, the blindsidedness of war, and the recklessness thrust on others in the name of love. The New York Times calls it, “Her most powerful book yet…The novel explores, with enormous emotional precision, the limitations and insufficiencies of love, and the loneliness that haunts even the most doting of families.” Moore is a recipient of a Lannan Literary Fellowship for Fiction and is a professor of English at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.

August Kleinzahler with Kate Moses, Conversation, 3 March 2010 – Video

Recorded at the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe, New Mexico on March 3, 2010. This is the conversation with Kate Moses. The video of the Reading can be found here.

August Kleinzahler’s poetry is described by the New York Times as “a modernist swirl of sex, surrealism, urban life and melancholy with a jazzy backbeat. His personality combines Allen Ginsberg’s goofball charm and Norman Mailer’s inveterate pugnacity.” He has published eight books of poetry, including A Calendar of Airs (1978); Earthquake Weather (1989); Red Sauce Whiskey and Snow (1995); and in 2003, The Strange Hours Travelers Keep which won the 2004 Griffin International Poetry Prize and the 2004 Gold Medal in Poetry from the Commonwealth Club of California, and was short-listed for the U.K.’s Forward Prize in Poetry. His most recent collection of poetry is Sleeping It Off in Rapid City. He is also the author of a book of prose, Cutty, One Rock: Low Characters and Strange Places, Gently Explained (FSG, 2004).

His poems have appeared in numerous publications including The New Yorker, Poetry, Harper’s, and The Paris Review. A native of Jersey City, Kleinzahler is the recipient of many awards, including a Lannan Literary Award for Poetry in 2008. Kleinzahler has been a taxi driver, a locksmith, a logger, and a building manager. He has taught creative writing courses at Brown University, the University of California at Berkeley, and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, as well as to homeless veterans in the Bay Area. He lives in San Francisco. On the title of poet, Kleinzahler says, “I don’t like to call myself a poet. Most poets are shiftless, no-account fools.”
