DONATO MANCINI's first book of poetry Ligatures (New Star Books 2005) was shortlisted for a ReLit award. His second book, Æthel, appeared in the Fall of 2007. A graduate student at Simon Fraser University, he is now at work on a study of reviews of postmodern poetry in Canada since 1961, and recently edited the new website for the Kootenay School of Writing.

"Reports from the reality-based community
sound out: Ronald Reagan
was a really nice guy,
much nicer than Khrushchev,
Gorbachev, Nardwuar, or
which modernist shut-in was it
who threw his sculpture –
or was it his wife? – out the window,
in which period of architecture
at what stage of empire?"

-- from "Hot Peace" (West Coast Line 51)
