Bruce Andrews is "a performance artist and poet whose texts are some of the most radical of the Language school; his poetry tries to cast doubt on each and every 'natural' construction of language" (The Oxford Companion to Twentieth Century Literature in English). A founding editor of the key journalL=A=N=G=U=A=G=E, Andrews has maintained a consistent position at the radical edge of the literary avant-garde. Author of over thirty volumes of poetry, and a collection of innovative critical essays (Paradise & Method: Poetics & Praxis, with a load of books, shorter texts, interviews, essays, recordings & commentary online at the Electronic Poetry Center, Ubu, PennSound, Eclipse, Jacket & Wikipedia). He has lived in New York City since 1975, teaching political science at Fordham University (see YouTube for his 5 minute dust-up with Bill O’Reilly), and since the mid-80s has been Music Director & sound designer for Sally Silvers & Dancers. [Sally, by the way, is in town performing with Yvonne Rainer at Red Cat this week, June 25 to 28.]
