KQED ARTS (SAN FRANCISCO) -- Poet Rae Armantrout was born in Vallejo, and after growing up in San Diego, she returned to the Bay Area to graduate from both UC Berkeley and San Francisco State. Armantrout was part of the first generation of the avant-garde Langauge poets, which developed in part in San Francisco. Her publisher describes Wobble this way: “Sometimes funny, sometimes alarming, the poems in Wobble play peek-a-boo with doom.”
