Andrew Joron & Will Alexander are celebrating the release of Andrew Joron's Trance Archive: New and Selected Poems and the forthcoming release of Will Alexander's Compression & Purity on Wednesday, June 16, 2010, 7:00 P.M at City Lights Bookstore.

Andrew Joron is regarded as one of American poetry's most profound practitioners. Trance Archive, Volume 3 in our City Lights Spotlight series, draws on over 20 years of Joron's work, tracing his trajectory from his early days as a science fiction poet to his later fusion of surrealist romanticism and language poetry materialism into what he calls "speculative lyric." Will Alexander is the next poet to be published as part of the City Lights Spotlight Series.
"Andrew Joron is a modern-day alchemist. He's not interested in solipsistic self-enrichment; rather, he practices the art of transformation. Though aligned with the revolutionary impulse behind Surrealism—the conjuring of paradox to expand the possible—he appreciates the movement's aesthetic limitations and has somehow, miraculously, managed to create poetry attuned to materialist critiques of language without abandoning any of the art's mystery and metaphysical inquiry."—Noah Eli Gordon, Bookforum
