Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. If there were an award for chapbook of the year it would surely be given to BY MYSELF: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. In the spirit of Goethe's comment, "One is never satisfied with the portrait of a person one knows," two celebrated poets, D.A. Powell and David Trinidad, have collaborated to create a perfect portrait of an unknown star in 300 lines by taking one sentence from each of 300 celebrity autobiographies. The result is poignant, poetic, and hilarious--a perfect and imperishable performance.

Synopsis:

A daring collaborative celebrity autobiography by two of America's finest poets, D.A. Powell and David Trinidad

About the Author

David Trinidad teaches at Columbia College, Chicago. He has taught at Rutgers, Princeton and Antioch (L.A.). His previous poetry collection, Plasticville, was published by Turtle Point Press in 2000. That book was shortlisted for the Lenore Marshall Prize of The Academy of American Poets. With Denise Duhamel and Maureen Seaton he edited Saints of Hysteria.
