Robert Anbian and Gerald Nicosia
open mic follows

Richard Anbian has been described as “a passionate virtuoso steeped in these times and deep with tradition,” according to Richard Hack, “[whose] poetry crackles with currency – hiply linguistic turns of natural originality, rhythmically brimming with a tempestuous taste of ecstasy, reason, and love.” Dusty Dog Reviews declared him “a genius or a Venusian.”

Gerald Nicosia is a biographer (“Memory Babe”), cultural historian (“Home to War”) and literary critic as well as a novelist, playwright, screenwriter and poet. His new book of poems is “Night Train to Shanghai” (Grizzly Peak Press, 2014).  Click here to read a review of that volume in the Huffington Post.  As a freelance journalist, interviewer, and literary critic for the past three-plus decades, Gerry has contributed to hundreds of publications, including the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, USA Today, the American Book Review, the Review of Contemporary Fiction, Contemporary Literary Criticism, and the New York Quarterly.
