Andrei Codrescu, author of The Poetry Lesson

Event date: 
Sunday, October 3, 2010 - 6:00pm

Andrei Cordescu, award-winning poet, novelist, essayist, teacher, and lecturer as well as regular correspondent on NPR, will read from and sign his new book The Poetry Lesson.

About the book:The Poetry Lesson is a hilarious account of the first day of a creative writing course taught by a "typical fin-de-siècle salaried beatnik"--one with an antic imagination, an outsized personality and libido, and an endless store of entertaining literary anecdotes, reliable or otherwise. Neither a novel nor a memoir but mimicking aspects of each, The Poetry Lesson is pure Andrei Codrescu: irreverent, unconventional, brilliant, and always funny.
