Joshua - I don't know if you will care for these books, but I read very little this year since I was busy having two back surgeries. I read "Also a Poet: Frank O'Hara, My Father, and Me" by Ada Calhoun in July, right before my first operation. I plan to read it again to see if the book will hit me differently because of Peter Schjeldahl's death in October.

Earlier in the year I read "frank: sonnets" by Diane Seuss. I was in the middle of it when it won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Poetry, so I was in no way surprised when it won the Pulitzer some time later. Those poems blew my damn mind.

Diane Seuss was born in 1956, Lucie Brock-Broido was born in 1956, I was born in 1956... Yay for Generation Jones? - Kim
