About the Author
Srikanth Reddy is Assistant Professor of English at the University of Chicago and the author of a previous collection of poetry, Facts for Visitors.
"An ambitious, richly imaginative work that poses vital questions about truth, authorship and narrative possibility in contemporary literature."--Mia Ayumi Malhotra"The International Examiner" (04/13/2015)
"These recastings form a highly ambitious book of political poetry that speaks hauntingly of our world."--Publishers Weekly (02/22/2011)
"The paradoxical lives of historical figures have long inspired poets, a tradition Reddy embraces and transforms in his audacious, deeply interrogative second collection. . . . Nuanced yet piercing."-- (02/15/2011)
"Through Reddy's 'erasures' and the negative capabilities of his excavated text we feel, even if we cannot see, what's missing, what's gone--into outer space, into self-denial, into the ironies of history and of the role between the wielders of pens and of swords. We find ourselves--culpable, impressionable, alive--in the human space he has created."-- (02/06/2011)
"Srikanth Reddy's much-anticipated second volume . . . assumes a planetary perspective on the 20th century."-- (01/24/2011)
"Reddy has fashioned an arresting, very personal voice by committing himself to using only words and phrases that appeared in--wait for it--Kurt Waldheim's memoirs. . . . Reddy is so gifted that the poems, despite their weighty origins, soar."-- (12/29/2011)
"Voyager is a nuanced and haunting book of geopolitical, literary, moral, and spiritual inquiry."--WBEZ-FM (03/22/2011)
"Erasurists find their imaginative space by reading creatively. One of the genre's most creative readers in Srikanth Reddy. Not only is his erasure, the book Voyager, conceptually captivating, but the writing is amazing. Let me repeat that: the writing is amazing."-- (01/01/2012)
