About the Author
Douglas Kearney: Douglas Kearney's first book, Fear, Some, was published in 2006. In 2008, he was honored with a Whiting Writers Award. Cultural critic Greg Tate remarked that Kearney's second book, National Poetry Series selection, The Black Automaton (Fence Books, 2009), "flows from a consideration of urban speech, negro spontaneity and book learning." Kearney's third poetry collection, Patter, examines miscarriage, infertility, and parenthood. He has received residencies/fellowships from Cave Canem, The Rauschenberg Foundation, and others. His work has appeared in a number of journals, including Poetry, nocturnes, Pleiades, Iowa Review, Boston Review, and Callaloo. Raised in Altadena, CA, he lives with his family in California's Santa Clarita Valley. He teaches at CalArts.
