About the Author

Robert Hass was born in San Francisco. His books of poetry include The Apple Trees at Olema (Ecco, 2010), Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winner Time and Materials (Ecco, 2008), Sun Under Wood (Ecco, 1996), Human Wishes (1989), Praise (1979), and Field Guide (1973), which was selected by Stanley Kunitz for the Yale Younger Poets Series. Hass also co-translated several volumes of poetry with Nobel Laureate Czeslaw Milosz and authored or edited several other volumes of translation, including Nobel Laureate Tomas Transtromer's Selected Poems (2012) and The Essential Haiku: Versions of Basho, Buson, and Issa (1994). His essay collection Twentieth Century Pleasures: Prose on Poetry (1984) received the National Book Critics Circle Award. Hass served as Poet Laureate of the United States from 1995 to 1997 and as Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets. He lives in California with his wife, poet Brenda Hillman, and teaches at the University of California, Berkeley.

Stephen Mitchell is a filmmaker, writer, Ferrari enthusiast (he owned a Ferrari GTO that is today worth $40M) and satirist who has created an entertaining and endearing character in Ray D. Shosay. Stephen Mitchell's previous book, Ignorance is Bliss, was described as America's answer to Martin Amis. It took us into the myopic and inebriated world of Martin Bliss, a senior Senator and an important figure on the Senate Intelligence Committee, who inadvertently changed the equilibrium of the world in between rounds of golf and wondering why the police were investigating him for the disappearance of his wife.
