More Amherst-based writers!!

Check out some of the latest, innovative fiction & poetry by Amherst-based writers:

John Edgar Wideman (one of the greatest authors writing in the English language; I highly recommend all of the books you will find when you click on his name above), Martín Espada (almost all of his work is excellent but I would recommend, "A Mayan Astronomer in Hell's Kitchen: Poems" and "Alabanza", James Tate ("Selected Poems" and "Return to the City of White Donkeys: Poems" are great!), and Dara Wier (check out, "Hat on a Pond")...

Please let me know about other Amherst-based authors as comments and I’ll post their links! Enjoy!
