Andrei Codrescu

ANDREI CODRESCU retired from Louisiana State University in 2009. Since then he has published a book every year and has been more active than ever; rarely has retirement been more rejuvenating. Codrescu is now taking a fresh look at old topics and bringing new life into some of his literary obsessions. He is also taking a keen interest in philosophy and religion and, in general, is toying with immortality. Los Angeles Review of Books is pleased to share some of Andrei Codrescu’s latest writing. We’ve also invited Marjorie Perloff to review his most recent poetry collection and Jean Harris to interview him.
