About the Author

John Ashbery is recognized as one of the greatest twentieth-century American poets. He has won nearly every major American award for poetry, including the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, the Yale Younger Poets Prize, the Bollingen Prize, the Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize, the Griffin International Award, and a MacArthur "Genius" Grant.

James Marcus Schuyler (November 9, 1923 - April 12, 1991) was an American poet whose awards include the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for his 1980 collection The Morning of the Poem.


"Destined to become a minor classic." -- W. H. Auden
"The best comic novel I've read since Lolita." -- F. W. Dupree
"As a comedy of American manners, there is very little, if anything, to compare with A Nest of Ninnies, and it remains as strong and as clever and as funny today as when it was first published in 1969." -- Brian Evenson
"Perhaps the most extraordinary thing about A Nest of Ninnies is that the two poets have dissolved their own personalities and merged so entirely into a common style that it can be said that the book's author is neither Ashbery nor Schuyler but a third entity fashioned in the process of collaboration." -- David Lehman
