Ian Monk
Family Archaeology and Other Poems

Dawson's Book Shop is pleased to welcome author Ian Monk for a special reading from his new book Family Archaeology and Other Poems, published by Make Now Press. Monk is a member of the Ouvroir de Littérature Potentielle, (OULIPO), a group, based in France, devoted to the exploring the possibilities of restrictive writing methods; all the poems in Monk's book have been generated from a challenging formal constraint.

"Once upon a time there was a potential literature; now, thankfully, it's been realized. Ian Monk's concrete language hits you like a ton of bricks. As visual as it is verbal, Monk's quantification of the contemporary churns the mundane into the exotic," - Kenneth Goldsmith

Joseph Thomas of CSUN (who read wonderfully at B&N Glendale a few weeks ago!) and Kenneth Goldsmith (aka Kenny G) will also read.

We had been blogging trying to find how our world sees book. It has been a lifeline for us. Your site provides some of the best examples of this sort and we will bookmark yours. Another one we found was and appears to be related to yours is book site/blog. It pretty much covers book related stuff.
