Underground poet Joel Landmine was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. He got his start at the now-defunct Tenderloin Reading Series and has been a mainstay of the Anger Management & Revenge and Bitches’ Brew Reading series. He has been a featured reader at San Francisco’s Litquake festival five years running, and Oakland’s Beast Crawl festival, as well as countless other Bay Area reading series. He has begrudgingly survived several near-death experiences. He lives with his cat in Oakland, CA. This is his first collection of poetry.
