James Reidel and his Gitanes

James Reidel and his Gitanes


One of BLP’s first authors, the lovely James Reidel, has informed us that he is the recipient of a $10,000 NEA translation grant. James has published poems in The New Yorker, The Paris Review, TriQuarterly, The New Criterion, Ploughshares, and other journals since the mid-1980s. He is the author of Vanished Act: The Life and Art of Weldon Kees, published in 2003 by the University of Nebraska Press. His translation of two of Thomas Bernhard’s poetry cycles, In Hora Mortis and Under the Iron of the Moon, was published as a single volume by Princeton University Press. Our warmest congratulations go out to Jim.
