A connoisseur of the bizarre and controversial, Austin lives in New York City and remains addicted to its dystopian landscape. He has published two previous collections of poetry, 1 UNDERWORLD 2 and 3 UNDERWORLD 4, plus the book length study, a deconstruction of t. s. eliot: the fire and the rose (Salzburg University Studies). In his younger days as a musician and songwriter he composed music and lyrics for Lou Rawls, Hammer, and other rock and jazz notables. Currently he co-edits the experimental literary magazine, BLACKBOX, while teaching at the State University of New York. "More earth-scraping than sky-scraping--but a nice blance of both, really...O'Hara and Ginsberg, too, but better than either, I think"--Bob Grumman.
