Poet John Tottenham by Actor Adam Goldberg

British-born, Los Angeles-based poet John Tottenham photographed by actor Adam Goldberg (Dazed and Confused, Saving Private Ryan). John Tottenham's new book of poetry, entitled Antiepithalamia & Other Poems of Regret and Resentment, is out now on Penny-Ante Editions. Tottenham writes hilariously savage, self-lacerating verse about the artistic ego that always slyly implicates his audience. His readings have been a staple at literary readings in the Los Angeles area, and he is well known among the town's art and literary circles. In performance, at least, his literary voice comes across as a pitch-perfect channeling of the Dostoevsky character from Notes From Underground. And his truth hits always have his audiences doubled over with laughter.
