LEFT COAST WRITERS FERRY PLAZA BOOK PARTY: Between Dog and Wolf by David Hathwell
Please join us for this celebratory reading of David Hathwell’s new book, Between Dog and Wolf. The French phrase “entre chien et loup” describes those moments at twilight when the eye, no longer to be trusted, can’t distinguish between a dog and a wolf. The poems in David Hathwell’s new collection take place on the threshold—unsettling, often perilous—between light and darkness: between the familiar and the unknown, the expected and the unforeseen, safety and danger.
David Hathwell’s debut collection, Muses, is from David Robert Books. His poems have appeared in more than a dozen literary magazines, national and international. A former English teacher, he has degrees in English from Stanford University and Columbia University, as well as an advanced degree in music theory from Queens College of CUNY. He is now a piano student at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and a bass in the Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco. (“My musical training, as much as any other influence, has shaped the character of my poetry.”) He lives in San Francisco with Stephen Goldston, his partner of forty-one years and husband of eight.
