Jee Leong Koh and John Marcus Powell 500

Two expatriate poets who have lived in New York long enough to consider themselves New Yorkers read their recent work.

Jee Leong Koh is the author of four books of poems, most recently “The Pillow Book” (Math Paper Press). His work has been anthologized in “New Poetries V” (Carcanet Press) and “Villanelles” (Everyman’s Library). He lives in New York City.

 

 

John Marcus Powell

John Marcus Powell is a poet who is also an actor. He is Welsh and for the past 25 years has lived in New York. Before that he lived in London, Paris, Rome, and Oran. Harold Pinter, his favorite writer and a great influence, directed him in The Man in the Glass Booth, encouraged his writing, and helped him get his short stories published in Joe McCrindle’s Transatlantic Review. He flirts with any anarchic poet he meets and at the moment is romantically involved with Whitman, Rimbaud, and Borges.
