A Los Angeles native, Erik Noonan attended Hampshire College and New College of California. His writing is available in print and online magazines and journals, and Bird and Beckett brought out Stances, his first collection, which Christopher Kondrich calls “anti-sonnets, sonnet-installations whose language is kaleidoscopic and refracted,” and Jesse Morse calls “erudite but not elitist . . . a natural exploration into the responsibility a poet undertakes in choosing our art.” Erik and his wife Mireille live in San Francisco, where he is revising a study of Paul Blackburn. Haiku D’État is his second book.
