Walk and Talk
Poet Jon Cotner, co-author with Andy Fitch of Ten Walks/Two Talks (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2010), has a new walking/talking/picture-taking project up over at the BMW Guggenheim Lab Blog. The project is a slideshow that encapsulates the people and places along Bedford Avenue, during the course of a single walk. It made me miss Brooklyn so much, even the crack houses.
Speaking of Jon Cotner, you can get a glimpse into his crystalline brain in this interview at Urbanomnibus.
A big congratulations to Nathaniel Otting, whose book Why Not Pass Easily Through Another’s Life—A Book of Hours; or Another Wrong Book, will be published by 1913 Press, along with Jane Lewty’s Bravura Cool. Both books were chosen for publication by Fanny Howe. I’m not familiar with Jane’s work, but Nat’s book is going to be an occurrence of unprecedented radness.
The good folks at Augury Books would like a minute of your time and a few of your bucks.
I like Vinyl Poetry. They just released their fourth issue and polished up their web site. Looks good and tastes great.
