Jeffrey Dunn Reads "The Albatross" by Charles Baudelaire

Jeffrey Dunn, writer, culture critic, teacher, and dyslexic, holds a Ph.D. in Culture Studies and English Literature. For forty years his teaching has integrated natural history, creative writing, DIY publication, film, and psychology—all summed up as place-based learning. His first novel, Dream Fishing the Little Spokane, has been described as “melancholic, irreverent, untamed” (Kirkus Reviews) and “a hoot that goes down easy” (natural historian Jack Nisbet). Recently, his interview, “A Conversation: Ginsberg on Burroughs,” was anthologized in David Stephen Calonne, ed, Conversations with Allen Ginsberg, 2019. More information and his author website can be found at
