Donato Mancini in America


The cover for LoitersackDonato Mancini is taking his singular brand of poetry, poetics, theory, theory theater, and laughter particles south of the border at the end of this month. He’ll be reading from and discussing his new book Loitersack, but in fact has an even newer book out just this week: snowline (eth press, 2015) collects 40 translations of “Mais où sont les neiges d’antan?,” that (600-year-) old chesnut from François Villon, into a handsome little book that includes original illustrations by Donato.
