MEET KAVEH AKBAR

 

Introducing our Spring Recommendation Calling a Wolf a Wolf by Kaveh Akbar, published by Penguin.

Kaveh Akbar is the founding editor of Divedapper. His poems have appeared in The New YorkerPoetryTin HousePloughshares and elsewhere. The recipient of a 2016 Ruth Lilly and Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Fellowship from the Poetry Foundation and the Lucille Medwick Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America, Akbar was born in Tehran, Iran, and currently lives and teaches in Florida.

'Do I have to talk about fear?
So much has already been said'

Sneak preview from Kaveh's poet's piece in the Spring Bulletin:

'My poems in Calling a Wolf a Wolf were little life-rafts - I'd gotten sober and I had no idea what to do with myself, my physical or psychic self. My whole adult life had been spent lurching from crisis to crisis; I had no relationship to a living that wasn't predicated on the pursuit of narcotic experience. The poems became a place to put myself for hours, days, weeks in a row'

Calling A Wolf a Wolf is available to pre-order here with 25% off for PBS Members. Charter Members will get their copy in the Spring mail-out alongside the Spring Bulletin magazine, Choice and all four Recommendation books!
