Planet Poet-Words in Space – NEW PODCAST! LISTEN to my September 29, 2020 conversation with poet and novelist Lee Slonimsky and essayist and teacher Peter Bricklebank. Lee, my special co-host, invited Peter to read and discuss his remarkable essay on moths, Virginia Woolf and much, much more - -“An Eclipse of One’s Own.”
Peter Bricklebank has published in The American Voice, Carolina Quarterly, Mid-American Review, Kansas Quarterly, Confrontation, Fiction, The New York Times Book Review and The Chicago Tribune, et al. His chapter on essay/memoir appears in The Portable MFA. He has taught at New York University, Sarah Lawrence College, and elsewhere, including a year as Nonfiction writer-in-residence at Central Connecticut State University and at Bar-Ilan University, Tel Aviv. Pandemics permitting, he co-teaches a winter workshop in Oaxaca, Mexico. He currently teaches in the online graduate program of National University and at the Hudson Valley Writers' Center. His work is forthcoming in The Bellevue Literary Review.
Lee Slonimsky is a poet, novelist, and financial manager. His latest books of poems are the bilingual Greek/English translation of sonnet sequence Pythagoras in Love from Enipnio Press, translated by Greek National Poetry Prize winner Stamatis Polenakis and published this past May, and Tibbetts Brook Park, 1953, Spuyten Duyvil Press (2019). His novel, thriller Bermuda Gold, uses the hedge fund industry as background. Lee collaborated with his wife, Hammett and Mary Higgins Clark Award winner Carol Goodman, on the Black Swan Rising trilogy under the pseudonym Lee Carroll. Lee’s hedge fund, Ocean Partners LP, takes a special interest in the humane treatment of animals. Lee taught at The City College of New York and the University of Pennsylvania among others.
