Poets Live: Hughes, Pirie and Finberg

Poets Live: Anglophone Poetry in Paris will be at Carr’s Pub, 1 rue Mont-Thabor, M Tuileries, Sept 20, 19hrs.

Peter Hughes, of Oystercatcher Press, was based in Italy for many years and now lives on the Norfolk coast. He is the author of over a dozen books of poetry which include The Metro Poems, Paul Klee’s Diary, The Summer of Agios Dimitrios, Behoven and The Pistol Tree Poems. Nathan Thompson has described the latter as ‘flickering, intense, innovative and utterly mesmerising’.

And there’ll be the release of corrupt press chapbooks: Pearl Pirie’s Mammals of Hoarfrost and Bonny Finberg’s “Déja Vu”.

Bonny Finberg lives in Paris and NYC. A native New Yorker, Bonny Finberg has traveled through Europe, India and Nepal. Her work has been translated into French, Japanese and Hungarian. Publisher’s Weekly said that her fiction in Best American Erotica “exudes a stunning sensual sensibility.” Her fiction, poetry and reviews have been published in numerous journals and anthologies and online zines.
