Poetry. Gay & Lesbian Studies. Steve Fellner's poetry is spunky, raw, immediate, and utterly compelling. BLIND DATE WITH CAVAFY serves up hilarious pathos and devastating humor. Bleak, deadpan, enthusiastic, earnest: Steve Fellner's book is all of these things, sometimes all of these things in one poem, sometimes all of these things in one line. His 'Self-Portrait' at the center of the book pushes the conventions of the post-confessional, transgressive impulse. The poems in BLIND DATE WITH CAVAFY shimmer with vulnerability, leaps, and dizzying riffs--Denise Duhamel. Steve Fellner's poems have a wonderful innocence and playfulness that so many of us lose, or forget that we have. They sneak up on you--while you're laughing and admiring their wit and sparkle, they'll swoop down and kick your ass--Jim Daniels.
