In the Mail

I love coming home to a mailbox of good stuff and today was a great day. First, many thanks go to Stefanie. I was one of the lucky winners of a chapbook she was giving away. The Pulitzer Prize nominated chapbook, Music Like Dirt by Frank Bidart, is a collection of poems centralizing on the theme of the human drive to create. I’ve only done a quick glance through it but look forward to spending some hours exploring the poems.

Also in my mailbox was the latest New York Review of Books. I have to fess up though and admit I’m behind on a couple of issues of this as well as Bookforum. Sigh.

And, those journals will have to wait because I started a new book, Astrid & Veronika by Linda Olsson. I kind of wondered if maybe I shouldn’t have saved this book up for when the temps in Dallas hit 100+ though, because the author describes a world of snowy fields, chunks of ice breaking in the river and seeking the warmth of a fleece jacket.
