You Are The Business
You Are The Business is a new book by Caroline Dubois, a Parisian poet who teaches at the Ecole des Beaux-Artsand who has translated Norma Cole and Deborah Richards into French. Dubois' poems playfully refer to themselves and to one another as would a map or a puzzle. The Book is part of the Serie d'Ecriture, Burning Deck Publisher's annual of new French poetry in English translation. Award-winning poet Cole Swenson also translated Dubois' 2001 Arrete maintenant [Stop Now], and has worked with other poets including Pierre Alfari, Olivier Cadiot and Pascalle Monnier.
