Bruce Kramer

‘Death by a Thousand Paper Cuts’

Bruce Kramer always had been in excellent physical condition, and he was proud of it. In the summer of 2010, he noticed he had a "floppy" left foot and thought it might be a pinched nerve or sciatica. During his regular physical examination, he mentioned he was "walking a little funny" and the doctor suggested he should see a neurologist. He procrastinated until he took a couple of falls in October, when his left leg collapsed.

A Conversation With Dr. Matthew Batt and Dr. Leslie Miller

Batt's first published work, Sugarhouse, is his harrowing and often hilarious story of renovating a Salt Lake City crack house. Miller's Y, her sixth collection of poetry, "describes motherhood with a broad-ranging intelligence, a fierce humor, and an elegant, emotive poetic line," according to her publisher, Graywolf Press. Batt and Miller are faculty members in the English Department and will read from their works on Friday, Sept. 21.
