Michael Gottlieb

Michael Gottlieb is the author of fourteen books, including The Likes of Us, Lost and Found, Gorgeous Plunge, The River Road, and New York. In the 1970s he helped edit the seminal magazine Roof. A native New Yorker, he wrote a 9/11 elegy, “The Dust,” which has been described by the poet and critic Ron Silliman as “one of the half-dozen most important poems written by anyone associated with Language poetry, a read-this-&-change-your-life experience.” In 2010, Faux/Other published Gottlieb’s Memoir and Essay, a memoir focusing on the early days of Language Poetry accompanied by an essay on the work of poetry.
