Poet and scholar Susan Gevirtz's new book Coming Events (Collected Writings) undertakes the search for what she calls a third apprehension, via questions concerning childhood learning; the vexed subject of discursive writing; film as writing's cousin; becoming a voyeur of translation ; and a woman writer among women writers, who offer support, dialogue, and challenge. In this remarkable hybrid work, Gevirtz steps outside formal constraints to interrogate structures of making and meaning in the conduct of the writer in writing.
SUSAN GEVIRTZ is the author of seven books of poetry, including AERODROME ORION & Starry Messenger, Thrall, and Hourglass Transcripts. Her critical works include Narrative s Journey: The Fiction and Film Writing of Dorothy Richardson and Coming Events (Collected Writings). She co-organizes the annual translation and conversation meeting of The Paros Symposium and teaches at California College of the Arts in San Francisco.
