Waiting for Godot

A literary evening in Washington, DC.  I am joined by poet and longtime dear friend Miles David Moore and Katherine Young, a gifted Russian translator and another good friend, at the after party following the Politics & Prose book launch for the Richard Peabody Reader released this year by Alan Squire Publishing.  Rick, who by the way is exactly one week older than me, is a razor-sharp (and frequently quirky) poet and writer who also edits and publishes Gargoyle, the seminal DC-based magazine founded in 1976 that may be one of  the finest literary journals in the United States. There are not too many writers in and around DC who have not been published by Rick and Gargoyle.  He published some of my early literary criticism and for that I will always be thankful.
