Susan Gevirtz attained national recognition in the 80s as one of the editors of How(ever), the journal of avant-garde women's poetry. Shortly aftewards she began publishing: Taken Place, Linen Minus, and Domino: Point of Entry. Her book on the English modernist novelist Dorothy Richardson, Narrative's Journey, is new from Peter Lang. Gevirtz is an assistant professor of Liberal Studies at Sonoma State University. Her new work, Black Box Cutaway, borrows the furious poetic energy of experimental cinema from Méliès to Marie Menken to the young underground filmmakers of today.
