Wondrously uncomfortable

Ken Chen at NYFA: "I recently hosted the most unpleasant literary reading I’ve ever attended—a poetic listening experience so wondrously uncomfortable that it led me to think about the purpose of poetry readings and the expectations we have of poetry itself...."

Ken is not only the director of the Asian American Writers' Workshop, but the author of the Yale Younger Poets-winning Juvenilia, which is highly recommended—in other words, a book of poetry that I actually bought!

Trivia: Can anyone tell me which film the cover image comes from?
