About this author


On November 5th, I was on a packed subway and I found poetry in an old man’s mouth. The following are not my own words – they are his.


74 year old man need help.

Live to be 74 years old and come back to find another man in your bed.

I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself right now. I need help.

I need help.

Need a psychiatrist on this train.

There ain’t nothing wrong with reaching out.


It hurt...

BUMMED OUT CITY, by Scott Burr - Review
Having just reviewed Ben Lerner’s first novel, it’s strange to be reviewing one that is both so similar and so different. Similar, because it is about a young, probably white, male writer who is somewhat lost in

Neil Gaiman
“What I say is, a town isn't a town without a bookstore. It may call itself a town, but unless it's got a bookstore it knows it's not fooling a soul.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods

Terry Pratchett
“A good bookshop is just a genteel Black Hole that knows how to read.”
Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!

Gary Provost
“This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals–sounds that say listen to this, it is important.”
Gary Provost
