Steve Brooks (Abhaya) – Poetry, Prose & Art

Not So Recent News

Scrappy photoI’ve been living in Asheville, North Carolina, since April of 2011. This move has proven advantages on several fronts. Among many other new friends, I met Thomas Rain Crowe, who was a contemporary in the whirlpool of poets that gathered in San Francisco in the Seventies, and subsequently, his New Native Press has published “Essential Occupation,” a book of poems written in Seattle in ‘04.

My third one-man show, “Nothing” a video, recorded in Seattle in ‘03, has been viewed over 2000 times on YouTube. Readings at the Altamont in Asheville and at Malaprops Books are also on YouTube.

“Fearless in Lucknow”, a book of prose that tells the story of my time in India with the teacher, H.W.L. Poonja, also called Papaji, is available on Kindle.

The book “The Window Seat (A Creative Life in San Francisco in the Seventies)” feels like it wants to be published soon. It is a compilation of “Savage Amusement” ‘75, “Dear Nadja” ‘82, and “Invisible Lion” ‘85.
