Lame House received four mentions on this year's Attention Span.

Anselm Berrigan included Arlo Quint's Photogenic Memory on his list and Graham Foust included Karl Parker's poem "Afterword" from Harmstorm.

Anne Boyer and Rick Snyder included Alli Warren's Cousins. Rick had this to say:

"This fantastic chapbook starts and ends with tours-de-force and doesn’t really let up in the middle. “My Factless Autobiography” would seem to nod to Ashbery’s “one-size-fits-all” approach, but the results are much edgier, grapevining through the mediated desires and battered bodies that mark this phase of the 'pax Americana.'"

Noah Eli Gordon on Alli Warren's Cousins

"Poetry peppered with sly, askance humor often makes one want to sneeze, which is to say trivializing itself by allowing what amounts to elbow-jab after joke to resonate more strongly than the confluence of delivery, content and context which originally formed it. What makes Alli Warren's Cousins (Lame House Press) so oddly endearing is its purposeful deployment of numerous, awkwardly-timed, elbow-jabs; here, one finds a joke-free, intelligent humor in lexical contortions and mashups, in the deft and unexpected vacillation from one mode of speech to another, often within a single phrase. Warren displays a serious commitment to delineating the multifarious registers of communication that collide into what we think of as culture. Moreover, her work exemplifies the way in which constructing an authentic self might be nothing more than an admission of one's inability to do so: "I attempted to write a manifesto / and it blew up in my faces." Smart, fun, and eminently readable, the work here is linked via a continual deepening of content, where an image or phrase from one poem becomes the impetus for a revisionary expansion in the following."

Noah Eli Gordon, Rain Taxi Vol. 12 No. 2, Summer 2007

Copies of the second printing of Alli Warren's Cousins are still available for purchase here.

Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church

Lame House will be releasing a second printing of Alli Warren's chapbook Cousins to coincide with the reading. Copies will be available for sale at the reading, and then here later in the week. So if you missed out last time, you have another chance.

Here are the poet bios from the Poetry Project website:

Brandon Brown is a poet and translator from Kansas City, Missouri. He had two chapbooks published in 2006, Memoirs of my Nervous Illness and 908-1078. He has recently published work in magazines edited by his friends. In 2005-2006 he co-curated the Performance Writing series, with Jocelyn Saidenberg, at New Langton Arts in San Francisco. He lives in San Francisco with Alli Warren and their cast iron pans.

Alli Warren
was raised in the Valley of San Fernando in Southern California. In 2006, Lame House Press published Cousins, and previous to that, some were Hounds and some were Yoke. She works in Berkeley at Small Press Distribution.
