Sibling Rivalry reading and LA gigs



A nasty bout of food poisoning scuppered much of my recent trip to Portland for AWP and No Fair/Fair. I missed the first two days – including the big Sibling Rivalry Press offsite reading I was supposed to host. Luckily, I recovered enough to do my signing at AWP and my reading at No Fair. Many thanks to Karen Head, JC Reilly and Dan Veach for having me at the Atlanta Review table and for the... Read more of this blog post »

“But I don't know, maybe it's just as well I never got there. I dreamed about it for so many years. I used to go to English movies just to look at the streets. I remember years ago a guy I knew told me that people going to England find exactly what they go looking for. I said I'd go looking for the England of English Literature, and he nodded and said: "It's there.”
