In his monthly poetry podcast, Radio Free Albion, Tony Trigilio interviews poets about their recently released or forthcoming books. Always informal, each interview is a conversation—two poets talking about the work and play of the creative process and showcasing some of the most innovative new work in contemporary poetry. In this interview, Trigilio interviews Jerome Sala.
Jerome Sala’s newest book is the poetry collection The Cheapskates (Lunar Chandelier Press, 2014). His other books of poetry include cult classics such as Spaz Attack, I am Not a Juvenile Delinquent, The Trip, Raw Deal, Look Slimmer Instantly, and Prom Night, a collaboration with artist Tamara Gonzales. His poetry and criticism have appeared in The Best American Poetry series, The Nation, Evergreen Review, Pleiades, Conjunctions, Rolling Stone, The Brooklyn Rail, and many others.
