Katy Bohinc

Katy Bohinc is the author of Dear Alain, a critique of Western philosophy in the guise (?) of love letters (of a poet) to a philosopher, mostly addressed to French philosopher Alain Badiou. As irreducible a work as any poet would antagonize a philosopher with, the book is also a representation of the thought of Badiou, who responds himself in the afternote. Bohinc demonstrates how love, politics, math and poetry are conditions on philosophy, sexual metaphors intended, and poetry is everything. Slavoj Zizek writes: “This book should be banished!” A New York resident, Bohinc is director of Tender Buttons Press. She recently edited Please Add To This List: A Guide to Teaching Bernadette Mayer’s Sonnets and Experiments. Her work has appeared in Poor Claudia, The Capilano Review, Elderly, Armed Cell and others. She is working on a new book titled THE COMMUNITY.
