I just got my copy of the "TransGenre" issue of Hotel Amerika, 7:2 (spring 2009), that contains an excerpt from my book, Things Come On (an amneoir). H.A. is big and glossy, like the magazines in the art library. I like it. I am looking forward to reading it, as it looks like there are a lot of innovative texts that make use of all the options for layout, typeface, pictures, etc. that god has given us. And all the literary and non-literary genres.
The most recent issue of Fact-Simile, 2:1 (spring/summer 2009), has a "diptych" ("What did you call me?!") that I wrote. But more importantly, it has a superb interview with Kristen Prevallet, on mourning and literature, that I highly commend to your attention. In fact, like her book I, Afterlife, the interview helps me to make sense of what I'm doing in Things Come On. Thanks, Kristen and JenMarie.
All of this, and the fact that Craig Santos Perez is reading in KC on the 17th (see above) makes me lit-happy.
