Language Poetry by the Bay: James Sherry: «The Grand Piano» Project:
...an ongoing experiment in collective autobiography by ten writers identified
with Language poetry in San Francisco. It takes its name from a coffeehouse at
1607 Haight Street, where from 1976-79 the authors took part in a reading and
performance series. The writing project, begun in 1998, was undertaken as an
online collaboration, first via an interactive web site and later through a
listserv.
