About this author


I reviewed Sarah Blackman's Mother Box and Other Tales for the Kenyon Review Online. Here's the first paragraph of that review:


The subtitle of Sarah Blackman’s Mother Box: and Other Tales—evoking
as it does Arabian nights, anthropomorphic animals, and high seas

present something out of the ordinary. And, from the first page Read more of this blog post »

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“There is in nature a parallel unity which corresponds to the unity in the mind and makes it available. This methodizing mind meets no resistance in its attempts. The scattered blocks, with which it strives to form a symmetrical structure, fit. This design following after finds with joy that like design went before. Not only man puts things in a row, but things belong in a row.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Jorge Luis Borges
“Besides, rereading, not reading, is what counts.”
Jorge Luis Borges

Eugène Ionesco
