Aby Kaupang & Matthew Cooperman | Poetry Flash Readings | East Bay

Aby Kaupang‘s new book of poems is Absence is such a Transparent House. Elizabeth Robinson says, “Aby Kaupang’s poetry demonstrates the effects of passion and will as they collide with the brutalities of the world.…Brave, uncanny, and deeply felt, this book balances the delicacies of attention with the fortitude of continuing exploration.” Her first collection was Scenic Fences/Houses Innumerable.

Matthew Cooperman‘s new book of poems is Still. Martha Ronk says of it, “A book as capacious as the ‘capacious being’ at its center, an anti-epic with an antic narrator demonstrating heroic ways to work and love and sing in this, our corrupt and entrapping world.” His first two collections were DaZE and Sacrificial Zinc, winner of the Lena-Miles Wever Todd Prize; he was a founding editor of Quarter After Eight, and he is poetry editor of Colorado Review.
