Joanne Kyger – There You Are

Published on Tuesday – We unequivocably sing its praises –  from Wave Books, There You GoInterviews, Journals and Ephemera by the late-lamented Joanne Kyger 

From the publisher’s site:

“The inaugural book of Wave’s new interview series, There You Are combines 40 years of interviews, letters, poems, and journals to present a narrative of the remarkable poet Joanne Kyger, who intersected with the most influential movements of late twentieth-century poetry yet remained rooted in her daily practice with a forthright attention to our present moment.”

We recently featured footage of Joanne reading  (from 1976 in Novato) –  here and  here

Here’s Joanne, eight years earlier, in a one-off collaboration with experimental filmmaker Robert Zagone (and Walt Bjerke and Loren Sears), from the film Descartes (1968)

.

Here‘s Joanne from 1978  (on Public Access Poetry)

 

More Joanne on the Allen Ginsberg Project here,  here, here,  here and here

 

Wave’s web announcement provides several tantalizing pages:

We’re thrilled to be able to announce this book – one of the all-time treasures, dear Joanne!
