Joel Whitney


Joel Whitney talks to Ivan about six things which he thinks should be better known.

Joel is the author of Finks: How the CIA Tricked the World’s Best Writers.

NOTE: Joel refers, during the Essential American Poets section, to a poet who was a carpenter, fought Fascists, was chased out of the country and sheltered in Mexico. Due to the editing, it sounds as if he is talking about Wallace Stevens. He is in fact referring to George Oppen. Apologies for any confusion.
