Although best known as a poet, Kleinzahler has long dabbled in music criticism, writing columns for the San Diego Reader and other publications, and these are now gathered in Music I-LXXIV (Pressed Wafer), a collection of tart, well-informed and opinionated essays ranging from Muddy Waters to Glenn Gould. He writes about Liberace’s “intriguingly repulsive” playing, the joy of bar jukeboxes and, in complete contrast, the crucial role music played in the Terezin concentration camp near Prague. Kleinzahler will also read from his 2008 poetry collection Sleeping It Off in Rapid City (Farrar Straus Giroux) which won the prestigious National Book Critic Circle award.
