Kevin Killian

Kevin Killian, one of the original New Narrative writers, has written a book of poetry, Argento Series; two novels, Shy and Arctic Summer; a book of memoirs, Bedrooms Have Windows; and a book of stories, Little Men, which won the PEN Oakland award for fiction. He has written often on the U.S. poet Jack Spicer, and the edition of Spicer’s poetry My Vocabulary Did This to Me, edited with Peter Gizzi, won the American Book Award in 2008. Recently, Killian’s books have been all about Kylie Minogue — a book of poems, Action Kylie, and a book of stories, Impossible Princess. He is a senior adjunct professor at California College of the Arts.
