“Mark Katzman’s weird and wonderful Playdate looks like a poem and reads like a novel. Fast, ever so fast and on point, it hurtles you through its dizzying narrative and leaves you gasping for breath. What a book. Once you start, it’s impossible to stop reading.”
–Paul Auster

“A weird wild ride with a protagonist that’s more sophisticated than Lester Ballard and more hysterical than Norman Bates.”
–Jim Ruland, author of Forest of Fortune

"William Bronk is some kind of vast, reflective prism, who now feels to me more like a principle or law of some kind than simply my mentor, friend, and spiritual father." 

Desire and Denial: The William Bronk - Mark Katzman Correspondence, a talk, was given at New York University on April 13, 2012 at the William Bronk Symposium, chronicling Katzman's seventeen-year friendship with the poet, whose book, Life Supports and Other Poems, won the National Book Award for Poetry in 1982. It is included in William Bronk in the Twenty-First Century - New Assessments, published by Talisman House (2014).
