I haven't been posting lately because in every spare moment I've been doing non-blog writing. It's good, like I've finally got to the top of some metaphorical hurdle. I feel very happy to be a child playing alone. As often as possible, which is never often enough. My excitement over the impending summer break is embarrassing.
Recently a few announcement-worthy things have come out.
On the print side of things, Elizabeth Hall's interview with me has come out in the Denver Quarterly. I worked hard on my answers. Elizabeth asked some tough questions. When I met her at the beginning of April she was wearing a very swanky, sexy red dress. I wish I had seen her in that before the interview; it would have been exciting to imagine this mysterious red-curved woman while I was toiling away.
On the cyber side of things, Sarah Todd's insightful and stimulating interview with me has been posted on the Girls Like Giants literary blog.
And in two dimensions simultaneously, Christopher Breu's scholarly article "Disinterring the real: Dodie Bellamy's The Letters of Mina Harker and the late-capitalist literature of materiality" has recently appeared in Textual Practice. I'm assuming there's a print version of this journal, but maybe I'm wrong. Chris is a wonderful scholar and writer and friend. Don't let the title scare you, check this article out! I was able to download it for free from the SFSU library website—after a couple of tries. Now that I've overcome my resistance to figuring out now to do this, I'm going to be downloading articles like crazy.
Spreadeagle is just out from Publication Studio. Kevin and I will be reading in Portland on May 30th to celebrate both our Publication Studio books.
And, oh, yeah, I wrote another column for SFMOMA's blog, on Wayne Koestenbaum's super fabu slide lecture on Harpo Marx at the SF Art Institute.
