Praise for You Being You by Proxy: Franz Wright

In You Being You by Proxy, Justin Marks has "discovered a very satisfying way of maintaining the difficult balance between the purely lyrical and the narrative elements of poetry. It seems to me I am always struggling with that, too, in one way or another."

--Franz Wright

Thanks for a Great Night

To all that came out to Fall Cafe for the launch of You Being You by Proxy and Kitchen Press, thanks! I had a great time, and feel the reading and launch was definitely a success. I especially want to thank Matt Henriksen for putting it all together, and Amy King for her fine reading.

For those of you who couldn't make it, no worries. There will be more readings coming up soon.

I also want to announce that You Being You by Proxy is now available for purchase online. Just click on the "Add to Cart" button at the top of the "Links" bar on this page and your copy will go in the mail ASAP!!

Thanks again.
