Tonight’s tune: Nick Drake’s “Which Will” — quite lovely (30 second excerpt here, though the entire song is most gorgeous and somehow necessary).
New to my reading list: Consider the Lobster by David Foster Wallace — I’ve never been interested in his fiction, but after a quick in-store scan, these essays picqued my curiosity — and they’re sustaining my interest so far (no real time to spend with them yet though until the semester’s glorious end). From the Guardian Unlimited, “...these pieces, previously published in Rolling Stone, Harper’s, Gourmet magazine and the Atlantic Monthly, explore three broad themes: language, literature and US society.”
Also, Bob Marcacci’s been posting some interesting pics from Bejing lately. Poetry happens everywhere — even now.
