Post-Avant by Daniel Zimmerman

My friend Dan returned with goodies from AWP:

Poker by Tomaz Salamun (ugly ducking press. really well made)
Fa(r)ther Down: Songs from the Allegy Trials by Arielle Greenberg (New Michigan press)
Post-Avant by Daniel Zimmerman (Pavement Saw Press)

I just started Post-Avant. Very impressed so far. I hadn't even heard of Daniel Zimmerman until today.

Also picked up a free poster of Iron and Wine (Our Endless Numbered Days).

Go Duke!

However, this hospitality has never extended to Irish poets w…
