Rae Armantrout Wins Pulitzer

Every so often, a major poetry prize will go to someone quite out of the mainstream of US American poetry. Last week it was Rae Armantrout winning the Pulitzer Prize. I had a chance to see her at the Buddhist Center in San Diego a few years ago with Eileen Myles and Jerome Rothenberg.

You can hear her read at the 92nd St Y in NYC here.

Congrats, Rae.
