Laynie Browne

Poet, prose, and hybrid genre writer Laynie Browne has two new books this year, Acts of Levitation (Spuyten Duyvil) and Pollen Memory (Tender Buttons). A former curator at the Ear Inn in NYC and Subtext in Seattle, Browne’s work was included in Poet’s Choice, edited by Robert Hass, and she is a past winner of the Gertrude Stein Award in Innovative American Literature. Her previous books include The Rebecca Letters (Kelsey St, 1997) and The Agency of Wind (Avec, 1999), of which Rain Taxi magazine said "the surrealism is distinctly latter day." Born in 1966 and raised in Los Angeles, Browne recently moved to Oakland.
