BECCA KLAVER: “Most of my reading time is taken up by my dissertation right now, which means that in addition to being immersed in primary texts by post-1945 U.S. women poets (Diane di Prima, Sonia Sanchez, Bernadette Mayer, Lyn Hejinian, Alice Notley), I’m also discovering some of the secrets of everyday life (Michel de Certeau’s The Practice of Everyday Life, Henri Lefebvre’s Critique of Everyday Life) and the too-soon-lost histories of second-wave feminism (Rachel Blau DuPlessis and Ann Snitow’s The Feminist Memoir Project, Toni Cade’s The Black Woman).” ISH KLEIN: “I am now reading Harmonies of Heaven and Earth: the Spiritual Dimensions of Music by Joscelyn Godwin, Morphology of the Folktale by Vladimir Propp, and Illustrated Games of Patience by Ben Estes.

Dick for my class at NYU in the foundations of American experimental writing, and also The Canterbury Tales, bilingual edition, translated by Sheila Fisher (Norton). I am enjoying the Chaucer in the extreme. I had only dipped in before. I love all the sex and scatology as well as the postmodern form of the whole.” DUSTIN LUKE NELSON has been reading James Gleick’s The Information, Privacy Policy, and documents from the NSA and DOJ on technology and hacking. He’s had Ashleigh Lambert’s Ambivalent Amphibians, Brad Liening’s Death Salad sitting on his desk for a ridiculously long time, because they’re wonderful.

GREG PURCELL: “I’ve been immersed in pulling the threads of music out of Ronald Johnson’s ARK—fascinated by what it sustained throughout the journey of the book, and the breadth of his fellowship—while remaining hardhearted to the book’s metaphysical

presence. Have been reading and teaching about forms of dissent in organizational life:

John Weeks’s Unpopular Culture is a good example. Ann Leckie’s gender-bending Ancillary Justice deserved its Hugo and a Nebula win last year. My first book, The Fundaments, will be released in Fall 2015 by Poor Claudia.”

BIN RAMKE: “These are books I am currently living with: Gillian White’s Lyric Shame:

the “Lyric” subject of Contemporary American Poetry; Hazel White’s Peril as Architectural Enrichment; Idiot Psalms, Scott Cairns; Transforming Matter: A History of Chemisty from
