When the beloved poet Mary Oliver passed away last week, so many of my friends reacted in the same way. “I feel as though I’ve lost a member of my family,” they said. I understood what they meant, even though on a personal level, Ms. Oliver could seem shy, even inscrutable at times, in a way I’ve... Read more of this blog post »

Linda Moon Linda Moon's blog:

Our hearts become silent painters
As our minds rumble and speak in tongue.

It wasn’t the wind, the fire or the rain
That aligned our comfort with such notions
But the chanting of the unknown
Declaring our freedom to speak

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
