Nice. Fans of Roof should also check out books from the publisher it evolved into, and know about the related Segue reading series when/if in NYC, as well as the Segue reading archive at PennSound. (And of course PennSound is a trove of Language and post-Language/Avant writing - that is to say, the most exciting poetry being written today - too.)

For more Language Poetry retrospect, see The Grand Piano: an experiment in collective autobiography by ten eleven San Francisco Language poets. (Rae Armantrout, Steve Benson, Alan Bernheimer, Carla Harryman, Lyn Hejinian, Tom Mandel, Ted Pearson, Bob Perelman, Kit Robinson, Ron Silliman, and Barrett Watten.)

However, the Eclipse archive of the English department at the University of Utah, which included an archive of L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E, is "temporarily unavailable.... Eclipse will return, new and improved, in 2013."
