Seconded. I have the Dancing Girl book - is there another one out?
Noemi Press I believe published the one I read.Johannes
She also released Afterpastures through Caketrain a year or two ago. I think it's still available, and has one of the best covers ive seen in quite a while. Very good, and I just ordered the DGP one. There's an ulterior motive in that she taught me, but I only read her work just before she moved back to NY.Very good example of a teacher who doesn't push an agenda. Out class was so hetrogenous as to be sometimes confusing.
I like the LPZ poems linked to a lot! They seem very Celanian to me or, derivative in the best sense: if, so to speak, the soil is good, then who cares that it's not a wholly new ground! Is t just me or is originality over-rated? If the work is good, then I believe that's as much as one can ask for. This view does not, I hope, suggest I don't love when writers work the wild of words. I hope everyone's doing well!
Yes, the entire book I read was Celan-influenced. But I think we only notice the influence when that influence is someone original like Celan. J

Many thanks for the link. Claire Hero was my teacher not so many years ago when she was in New Zealand. It was a privilege.
