Poetry. In PLAYTIME, William Fuller offers dispatches from a strange world. Through deadpan memoranda and dark parables, he addresses uncommon topics from witchcraft to vegetable life. Yet his focus often swerves from recognizable phenomena to the unobservable edges: "We are always searching in vain. Something moves, making us aware that once we were more aware." And in that striving, shared between writer and reader, Fuller suggests that this strange world is decidedly ours.
William Fuller was raised in Barrington, Illinois, and studied literature at Lawrence University and the University of Virginia. His most recent books of poetry include PLAYTIME (Flood Editions, 2015), Quorum (2012), HALLUCINATION (Flood Editions, 2011) and WATCHWORD (Flood Editions, 2006). He is chief fiduciary officer of the Northern Trust Company in Chicago.Author City: CHICAGO, IL USA
