RATTLE Interviews Anthology


Cheesy working title: A Fox in the Henhouse: 20 Conversations with Contempoary Poets

Looking at the list of poets Alan Fox has interviewed in the last 12 years is pretty impressive. Other than the ridiculously-priced-yet-still-in-print Between the Lines series, there seems not to be much competition in this little niche. We might already have a press lined up, and a good one, so beyond just trying to gage general interest, we've got to narrow this list down some. I'd really appreciate your opinions.

Keep in mind that these aren't intense, academic interviews -- they're casual and discursive, open-ended, more about the poets' thoughts and personalities than specific details about their work.
