Vincent Quatroche of Dunkirk, New York has been writing for over thirty years. His fifth collection of poetry, prose and short stories entitled The Terrible Now was released in 2009 through Xlibris Press. A persistently cryptic and annoying presence on the poetry circuit in the Northeast region of the United States attempts to silence him have been unsuccessful. In addition, Quatroche works in the spoken word/sonic landscape media and has released numerous projects on tape/CD in the last two decades. A new CD entitled Vanishing Breed was released in 2009. Of course Quatroche doesn’t make a living doing any of things, relying on being employed as a career education at area colleges and correctional facilities, where his students (and inmates) find him equally persistent, cryptic and annoying.
