I am passing the sticky!
You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be?
The Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson, because she knew a lot about burning.
Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?
Not on a written character, because I need visuals – but when I was young, Keanu Reeves and…Madonna. Shudder.
The last book you bought is:
Blab: the comics anthology
The last book you read:
The Secret Life of Bees. Just awful. Stay away. I can’t even begin to list all the things wrong with this book. Yet I finished it.
What are you currently reading?
Are You Experienced? poetry anthology edited by Pamela Gemin
The Collected Poems of Mark Strand
Pick up at Noon Street – early short stories by Raymond Chandler
Michelle Tea’s Rent Girl
Final Girl – Daphne Gottlieb
Granta – shrinks
I read a lot of books at the same time.
Five books you would take to a deserted island:
Collected works of Shakespeare, because they would take forever to finish.
Sylvia Plath, collected poems.
Gertrude Stein, 3 Lives.
Wallace Stevens, Collected Poems.
and a blank book for writing.
Who are you going to pass this stick to (3 persons) and why?
JaneCrow -- a fantastic interesting chica/poet who is a loyal reader of my blog.
Mickey Z -- an extremely learned counter-culture hero, and also a gifted poet.
Jason Stuart – a great poet and funny guy, sent me poetry postcards despite my flakiness in returning the favor.
