In a voice that is urgent, Howard Altmann asks the world to be patient with all that it cannot hear. Poet John Ashberry calls Altmann's interrogations and his hypnotic, mysterious and dreamlike poems 'as essential as a glass of water'.
Howard Altmann lives in New York City but was born and raised in Montreal where he graduated from McGill. He received his MBA from Stanford University and was Senior VP of W.P. Carey & Co, a boutique real estate investment company. He has taught poetry at a women's prison in Manhattan. His poems have appeared in Poetry, Ploughshares, and others.
