“In the Desert Air”

It’s not my best title, but I’ve got an essay up in the new issue of Noö. That is, the new Noö. It’s about a single night I spent with a friend on a cross-country trip taken so long ago it feels like ancient history.

Thanks to Adam for asking me to be a part of it, and to Mike and Ryan for putting together this guest-editor-rotating online venue.

“Play Dead”

TR37CoverGot the current issue of Tampa Review in the mail today. It’s in hardcover! There’s an essay in there taken from the opening chapter of The Authentic Animal, about a dead pet canary that becomes a museum relic.

Other essays therein by Douglas Danoff, Jack E. Fernandez, and Gary Fincke. Fiction by Heather Brittain Bergstrom, John Matthew Fox, Chris Huntington, Manjula Menon, and Courtney Zoffness. Poetry by lots of people.

The dustjacket, as you can see, looks like a Duchamp, and if you like that you should see how gorgeous the cloth cover is. Order an issue here.
