About the readers:

Cynthia Kimball learned a lot about poetry while she was living in Buffalo, New York. Now she lives here in Portland and teaches at Portland Community College. She grew up in a small town in Idaho where the Methodist church has a spaghetti dinner on election night to feed the people who came in from the backcountry to vote. A full list of other places she has lived is available upon request.

Charles Borkhuis is a poet, playwright, and essayist. His books of poems include Hypnogogic Sonnets, Proximity (Stolen Arrows), and Dinner with Franz, and the most recent, Alpha Ruins (Bucknell University), was selected as a runner-up for the 2001 William Carlos Williams Book Award. Mouth of Shadows, a collection of full-length plays, was published by Spuyten Duyvil in 2000; Black Light, a CD released in 2002, contains two radio plays produced for NPR. His latest play, The Man in The Bowler Hat, is scheduled to be produced in New York in 2003.
