Purchase; from John Brandi; March, 2009.
In English.
Born in 1943, John Brandi attended California State University, Northridge and graduated with a B.A. in art and anthropology. From 1966 to 1968 he worked as a Peace Corps volunteer in Ecuador. It was also in Ecuador that Brandi began publishing his poems in hand-sewn mimeograph editions. After further travel he returned to the United States where he met several Beat Generation poets and David Meltzer, who published Brandi's first collection of prose poems. In 1971 Brandi moved to New Mexico and established Tooth of Time Books, which published the works of new poets. In addition to his writing and art Brandi teaches in a wide variety of settings, such as schools, prisons, nursing homes, and centers for at-risk youth.
