Author Biography - Bruce Andrews
Bruce Andrews is "a performance artist and poet whose texts are some of the most radical of the Language school; his poetry tries to cast doubt on each and every 'natural' construction of language" (The Oxford Companion to Twentieth Century Literature in English). Andrews is a founding editor of the legendary journal L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E, which catalyzed the eponymous poetry movement that emerged in the 1970s and '80s. His many books include Lip Service, Give 'Em Enough Rope, Designated Heartbeat, Ex Why Zee, Tizzy Boost, and I Don't Have Any Paper So Shut Up (or, Social Romanticism).
