More About the Author
Christian Peet is the author of a cross-genre collection of "postcards," _Big American Trip_, published by Shearsman Books; and two collections of absurd lyric essays, _Pluto: Never Forget_ (Interbirth Books), and _The Nines_, (Palm Press). His work appears in magazines such as Action Yes and Denver Quarterly, and in the anthologies, _A Best Of FENCE: The First Nine Years_ (Fence Books, edited by Rebecca Wolff, et al) and _A Megaphone: Some Enactments, Some Numbers, and Some Essays about the Continued Usefulness of Crotchless-pants-and-a-machine-gun Feminism_ (Chain Links, edited by Juliana Spahr and Stephanie Young).
Peet is the publisher and founding editor of Tarpaulin Sky Press, disseminating hybrid / trans-genre texts and innovative poetry and prose through the publication of trade paperbacks, hand-bound books, and a literary magazine that appears online and in print. Although known for their "experimental" nature, Tarpaulin Sky Press titles are, for some strange reason, widely reviewed, in places as varied as After Ellen, The Nation, HTML Giant, Publishers Weekly, Time Out New York, Library Journal, American Book Review, TriQuarterly, and Jacket.
Peet taught Creative Writing and Poetry workshops as well as various Literature courses in New York City and Vermont, until moving to Italy, where he lives in a seaside villa somewhere between the late-15th and early-16th century.
