Geoffrey Dyer’s first book of poems, “The Dirty Halo of Everything,”was published by Krupskaya Press in 2003. Of Dyer’s work, John Yauwrites, “Welcome to the ‘valley of the near yonder hell, an Out Westsort of place,” where you will find “Golgotha embellished in cement”and the “mascara of Andromeda.” While you are here, “pay attention tothe words collaborating inside [y]our skull.” Geoffrey Dyer certainlydoes. So much so I swear that Apollinaire, William Eggleston, andHarry Dean Stanton have been slipping Dyer some potent Kickapoo Joy Juice. …This is America. And, like Eggleston and Stanton, Dyer is adamned wonderful guide.” An original member of the New Brutalistpoetry collective and a graduate of Mills College’s MFA Program, Dyerlives and blogs in the Bay Area.
