Musician, composer, and emeritus professor R. Gary Deavel retired from Manchester University in North Manchester, Indiana, where he taught piano, organ, music theory, and humanities. He lives in Traverse City, Michigan. Having recently turned 89, it seems to us that Gary will be our reigning elder for the foreseeable future. Hurrah!
We are delighted to include his “Variation on ‘What the Moon Knows'” as part of the “Vicinity | Memoryall” audio download and are thankful for Evola Music in Traverse City for their recording of his piano piece.
We are an independent press in Seattle, Washington. We publish collaborations between poets and artists of all types. We also have an interest in publishing contemporary Argentinian poetry in translation and supporting writers with an interest in Argentinian culture and Jewish history in Latin America. Gay-owned and queerly run.
Thanks to the Primo Levi Center for featuring our new Amelia Rosselli translation of "Diario Ottuso/Obtuse Diary". These folks are doing important work to remind us all about the horrors of fascism. bit.ly/2QKXQCZpic.twitter.com/jUpToqlmly
