Robert Roth is a New York based writer of poetry, fiction and personal, social, and political essays. He is the author of Health Proxy and has been an editor of And Then magazine since 1987. “I’ve devoted my life to working towards social/political/personal transformation. This often involves great intensity, terror, occasional satisfaction as well as extreme exhaustion. The internal and external prisons are there. They interact with each other. How to help free myself from them has been my life’s work. It has involved a constant search, a search involving a lot of other people. All of us trying to make sense out of things and learning in the process how to also accept when there is no sense there to be made sense of.”
