He is an environmentalist, an accomplished songwriter, and has been part of the vital Bay Area scene for two decades. His poems and short fiction have appeared widely in small press, Internet and literary magazones. Punk Rockwell is his first novel

"Rothenberg's PUNK ROCKWELL follows and breaks all the rules of fiction simultaneously. A slow-motion, spiraling bullet aimed right between the eyes...original with a capital O."
---Michael Largo (author, Southern Comfort)

Michael Rothenberg has one of those genius takes on language...wit and wordlove, enough to move mountains, chip by chip.
--Jack Cullom (author,8-Ball)

Michael Rothenberg amazes me with his industry, talent, energy, focus, curiosity.
--David Meltzer (author,The Agency Trilogy)
