Larry Kearney was part of the San Francisco Renaissance, and has written many books of poetry, including Streaming (Trike Press), A Life Forseen in Memory (Worm in the Rain Press), and most recently Passion (Transmission Press). David Meltzer says "Kearney is one of those unsung cats who has been producing intelligent thoughtful snarly deeply musical poetry, deeply felt wryly wrought astute poetry of the first rank for decades for a select few—you're in for a rare treat."
