Sunday morning with a coffee and cigarette

At least that's how I spend my first waking hour on a Sunday.  I also read some good stuff in the papers:

For all the accolades about Frank Wilson as an indispensable editor, mentor, etc, let's not forget he is also a great book reviewer.  I have especially enjoyed his poetry reviews.  Today, he goes out on top at the Inq with his review of Elizabeth McFarland's posthumous collection (edited by her husband, Daniel Hoffman), Over the Summer Water.

Also, Eric Ormsby writes about Susan Howe's My Emily Dickinson in the NY Sun and Giancarlo De Cataldo offers his reflections on Italian Crime fiction in the Telegraph.

So, sit back, relax with that newspaper and smoke 'em if you got 'em (my time is up: the kids are clamoring for more food).

Thank you. I read Frank Wilson's article and was struck by how talented Ms. McFarland was. This is lovely:

I have stood so long in this place
I have lost account of my face.
I have stared so hard at this tree
I am grown blossomy.

In my branches, words
Bicker like birds.

From now on,"blossomy" will be part of my lexicon.
