Poetry

Anna Paige

Poets Dave Caserio and Martin Farawell have been bouncing ideas off one-another since the 1980s, when they were in the graduate writing program at NYU. 

Over the years, they’ve remained friends, poetic confidants, and muses for one another. Caserio now lives in Billings, and Farawell in Pennsylvania with his wife Cheryl Solimini

In the acknowledgements of Cara Chamberlain’s recently published book of poetry, Lament of the Antichrist in a Secular World and Other Poems, she credits her husband Bernie Quetchenbach—who is also a writer—with saving her many embarrassments. Similarly, in Quetchenbach's newly-published book of essays, Accidental Gravity: Residents, Travelers, and the Landscape of Memory, he mentions gratitude to Chamberlain for her patience and support and for reading every word of the manuscript—including thousands that are no longer there.
