Selected Prose of Bobbie Louise Hawkins…

is now available through BlazeVOX [books]! This is a wonderful collection of Bobbie’s work, edited by Barbara Henning,and is an exciting chance to read one of the Naropa community’s most celebrated writers.

Anne Waldman writes: Bobbie Louise Hawkins is a remarkable master of the witty understated prose sentence and writes in the lineage of Barbara Pym and Jane Bowles; she is also a fabulous storyteller with a great ear for the “very thing”: quip or bon mot. She should be more discovered and read beyond her adoring fans at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics where Bobbie presided as a grande dame teacher and consummate genius performer of her work many years. This collection is a terrific revival!

More of Bobbie’s work can be found in the Naropa archives here.
