Among the Pages

Choosing a book to read. It’s not about only what’s newly published, hotly reviewed, or otherwise hitting the bestseller lists; it’s also about your mind wandering, a memory revisited, hearing something of interest through whatever medium, or simply a title and what it evokes. Like this, I read multiple books in shifts some months, bookmarked and ready to resume in whatever order I choose, some months just one book. Other months I look up, get on the road, and take photographs. Here’s what I’m reading now in no particular order:

  • Compass & Clock (poems) by David Sanders (Swallow Press/ Ohio University Press)
  • Beyond the Crossroads: The Devil and the Blues Tradition by Adam Gussow (The University of North Carolina Press)
  • Lonesome Lies Before Us (novel) by Don Lee (W.W. Norton & Company)
  • ShallCross (poems) by C.D. Wright (Copper Canyon Press)
  • Available Surfaces: Essays on Poesis by T. R. Hummer (The University of Michigan Press)
  • She (novel) by Michelle Latiolais (W.W. Norton & Company)
  • Ever (poems) by Ralph Adamo (Lavender Ink)
  • Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs by Sally Mann (Little, Brown and Company)
  • Reckless Daughter: A Portrait of Joni Mitchell by David Yaffe (Sarah Crichton Books, Farrar, Straus and Giroux)
  • Crazy Moon (poems) by Bet Wooten (Mila Ink)

Be adventurous. Be random. Enjoy!
