Nicky Beer : part three

What other poetry books have you been reading lately?

Right now, I’m making my leisurely way through Gerald Stern’s This Time: New and Selected Poems—it’s very bolstering stuff to read first thing in the morning. And I taught a queer lit class last semester, which gave me the opportunity to read and reread books by some wonderful contemporary poets: Donika Kelly’s Bestiary, Alicia Mountain’s High Ground Coward, Stephanie Burt’s Advice from the Lights, Stacey Waite’s Butch Geography, Aaron Smith’s Primer, Sam Sax’s Madness, Hieu Minh Nguyen’s Not Here, and Cameron Awkward-Rich’s Sympathetic Little Monster.
