About the Author

James Broughton (1913-1999) was a beloved and seminal figure of the San Francisco Renaissance. His 1967 prizewinning film The Bed shocked and delighted audiences with its playful and honest sexuality. He is the author of nearly two dozen works of poetry and prose; and nearly two dozen short films. He taught at the San Francisco Art Institute from 1968 to 1982.
Jack Foley is an innovative, widely-published poet and critic who, with his wife, Adelle, performs his work frequently in the San Francisco Bay Area. Among his many books of poetry are Letters/Lights-Words for Adelle, Gershwin, ADRIFT (nominated for a Northern California Book Reviewers' Award), EXILES, Fennel in the Rain (with Adelle Foley), Ash on an Old Man's Sleeve, and A Disordered City (included in Ahadada Reader 3). His books of criticism include the companion volumes O POWERFUL WESTERN STAR (which received the Artists Embassy Literary/Cultural Award 1998-2000) and Foley's Books as well as The Dancer & the Dance: A Book of Distinctions. Foley's recent two-volume VISIONS & AFFILIATIONS: A CALIFORNIA LITERARY TIME LINE 1940-2005 has received international attention with reviews in both England and the USA; like O POWERFUL WESTERN STAR, it was awarded the Artists Embassy Literary/Cultural Award. Since 1988, Foley has hosted a poetry radio show on Berkeley station KPFA. His column, Foley's Books, has appeared for many years in the online magazine, The Alsop Review, and he is a Contributing Editor of Poetry Flash. On June 5, 2010 Foley received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Berkeley Poetry Festival, and June 5, 2010 was proclaimed Jack Foley Day in Berkeley. The Fall 2012, vol. 5, no. 1 issue of the online Tower Journal is a Festschrift for Foley ( EYES is Foley's Selected Poems.
