Peter Conners has published eleven books of nonfiction, fiction, and poetry, and edited dozens of volumes of poetry and prose. His nonfiction books – Cornell ’77; Growing Up Dead, JAMerica, and White Hand Society — have garnered him a reputation as a leading chronicler of the Grateful Dead, jam band, and countercultural community. Spring 2022 marks the publication of Conners’ debut novel, Merch Table Blues, and his first prose poetry collection in a decade, Beyond the Edge of Suffering. His other books include the prose poetry collections Of Whiskey and Winter; The Crows Were Laughing in their Trees; and the novella, Emily Ate the Wind. He is also editor of PP/FF: An Anthology and the Executive Director and Publisher of the award-winning independent publishing house BOA Editions, Ltd []. Conners’ books have received reviews in such places as Rolling Stone Magazine; Library Journal; Penthouse; Publishers Weekly; Vice; Kirkus; The Onion; and The New York Post. The San Francisco Chronicle noted that “Conners writes like a poet and researches like a scholar,” and NPR Books likened his writing to “…the way music sounds when your surrender has no limit.”
