"Waldman is at the apex of her career, and the legitimate heir to Allen Ginsberg's crown as America's underground 'poet-ambassador' laureate."--Colorado Springs Independent

In the Room of Never Grieve charts Anne Waldman's dynamic career and reveals a mature, wise, and spiritual poet with enormous energy and vast literary powers. A CD featuring Waldman's performance of her signature work accompanies this exhilarating and vital addition to American poetry. While reading these poems is essential, hearing the poet's voice lift them off the page is transcendent.

Anne Waldman is a poet, performer, cultural activist, professor, and author of over forty books. In an ongoing -mission to "make the world safe for poetry," she teaches seminars and -performs her work around the globe.

Review quote

"When Allen Ginsberg passed from us it was Anne Waldman who dutifully gathered up his many burdens, continuing his work as poet, activist, and teacher. In following his example she has bloomed as an example herself. How fortunate we are to have her among us and may we all reach out and take a small amount of her burden upon ourselves."--Patti Smith
