Episode 272 — Sommer Browning


Sommer Browning is the guest. Her new poetry collection, Backup Singers, is now available from Birds Publishing.

Mathias Svalina says

Sometimes I think Sommer Browning is a James Wright for the basic cable generation, at others the gorgeously deformed lovechild of H.D. and Groucho Marx. What I mean is I cannot categorize these poems, and that’s the highest compliment I can give any poetry.

Monologue topics: Birds, Bird, Charlie Parker, being pressed for time.
