Listed below are links to weblogs that reference On the Importance of Literary Friendships (by Leslie McGrath):


You give as good as you get, my friend.

Recently, I'm pretty certain, you've been shaking your head thinkin' to yourself, "What am I gonna say about this?!"

Good stuff, Leslie!

It's been a pleasure reading these posts, Leslie. I consider myself very lucky to call you friend. I certainly hope BAP will have you back for more blogging in the future.

You've been fortunate in your mentors and friends, and how lovely that you mean to carry the tradition forward. Nice column. Very glad you've been writing for us.

Thanks for counting me, Leslie. The funny thing about these literary friendships is that they allow for mutual mentoring!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
