Left Coast Writers: David Hathwell
September 11, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The French entre chien et loup describes moments at dusk when the eye, no longer to be trusted, can’t distinguish between a dog and a wolf. The poems in David Hathwell’s second collection take place on the threshold between light and darkness: between the familiar and the unknown, the expected and the unforeseen, safety and danger. Erica Dawson calls the poems “sharp and unsettling,” and Between Dog and Wolf “an important book for times like these.”
David Hathwell published Muses, his debut collection, in 2016, to acclaim from, among others, Richard Wilbur, Dana Gioia, and Edmund White. His poems have appeared in more than a dozen literary magazines. A former English teacher, he has degrees in English from Stanford and Columbia, and a degree in music theory from Queens College of CUNY. He has studied piano at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and sung baritone in the Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco and the San Francisco Choral Society.
