Episode 358 — Janaka Stucky


Janaka Stucky is the guest. His new poetry collection, The Truth is We Are Perfect, is available now from Third Man Books.

Bill Knott says

Stucky’s verse has the power of the best East European poets—some of his poems seem to be perfect, magnificent, and instantly anthologizable. He is a forceful, cogent, incisive phrase-maker.

And Phantasmaphile says

Stucky has catapulted into the firmament of my favorite ecstatic writers alongside Diane di Prima, Bill Callahan, Hafiz, e.e. cummings, and Larkin Grimm.
