BOOK LAUNCH: Solitary Pleasure: Selected Poems, Journals and Ephemera of John Wieners

Short url:

‘John Wieners has been described as both ‘the greatest poet of emotion’ (by Robert Creeley) and ‘the poet laureate of gay liberation’ (within the Gay Liberation press). Solitary Pleasure delivers us this poet raw with mid-century queer feelings. Here, we encounter a writer preoccupied with the power and magic of poetics to profoundly render love, loss and survival in the face of destruction.’— Nat Raha, from the introduction

Join us at Housmans for the launch of ‘Solitary Pleasure: selected Poems, journals and ephemera’ by the great American poet John Wieners.

With an introduction by the legendary Nat Raha, this new collection from Pilot Press, the country’s most exciting queer publisher, is a vital addition to the fatally neglected poet’s oeuvre. Pilot Press has invited a group of some of the most innovative voices in queer literature and art today to read from the collection, these are:

Nat Raha

Laurel Uziell

Brooke Palmieri 

D Mortimer

Richard Porter

Al Anderson

Verity Spott 

Katherine Franco

Olivia Laing

Please RSVP, this event is free to attend.
