Review, Reading, Read

1. Melissa Chichester wrote a fantastic review of Flowing for PANK. Thanks Melissa, Kirsty and Roxane.

2. During the 'Random Live Broadcast of Recent Book I liked #3,' at HTMLGIANT, Blake Butler read chapter 10 of Flowing. That was really awesome. I was surprised and flattered.

You should watch the entire video. It's archived here. He read from the following books:
Museum of the Weird by Amelia Gray, The Book of Frank by CAConrad, Unclean Jobs for Women and Girls by Alissa Nutting, Selected Poems by Mary Ruefle, Event Factory by Renee Gladman, and Sean Kilpatrick’s “The All Encompassed Drowned” from New York Tyrant Issue eight. All good.

3. Ravi Mangla asked me some questions about books for his blog Recommended Reading, here. Ravi is rad.

4. My Son My Son What Have Ye Done? Was eh.

5. Coffee.

6. Going to watch White Ribbon.

I just got the white ribbon from the library. I've been wanting to see it for so long. I hope it's good.

Hello Michael,

I hope so too. I've not watched it yet. It's sitting next to the TV. I'll probably watch it tomorrow night. Have you seen Caché?
