Box of Replenishments

Bought books this week! 3 from the local indie (The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht, How to Breathe Underwater by Julie Orringer, and The Feast of Love by Charles Baxter), 1 from a press website (In the Carnival of Breathing by Lisa Fay Coutley), and 1 from Amazon Marketplace (Robert Penn Warren's Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce). Looking forward to devouring them when I'm unplugged in Oregon next week.


Killer first line of the moment:

Like a twentieth-century dream of Europe--all

from Laura Kasischke's "Time"
(Space, in Chains, Copper Canyon Press, 2011)


Anis Shivani features NYQ Books and After the Ark over at Huffington Post in his 4th of July post: "20 of the Best Books from Independent Presses You Should Know About."

Whoa. How bout that. Though, the last line of the poem quoted should read "exploring the sky, open and distant."


I remember that show. How bout a picture of it?
