I kinda love Kazim Ali. He's a magnificent writer and has been incredibly kind on the few occasions I've been fortunate enough to hang out where he happens to be. I got to see him on a panel at AWP '08 where he read just a little bit and brought down Midtown. He's reading twice in NYC this weekend.
