This throwback Friday. A long time ago: I was interviewed on NPR about my first book. I sound so young here... http://www.trashotron.com/agony/audio/2008/2008-news/091008-hamm.mp3 And: I gave my first book to Dorianne Laux. And she wrote me back with a comment: "Thank you for giving me a copy of your book Christine. I'm loving it. Fabulous. Dark, funny, strange and beautiful. I'm about halfway through and my favorites so far are Christmas in Hell, Period, Diary of a Thief, Love Song, Stable, Mouse and The Underneath. And of course, the new Q!"

Your Mother, Hiding Behind Her Hand shining like a fawn at the subway stop your palm right here/on my neck inside you white irises in a plastic vase talk softly the numbers shift/flow like the poison burning cursive on my calves lucky charms and milk spill from the gold of your teeth
