Listed below are links to weblogs that reference What Nighthawks Says About Fiction (by Lawrence J. Epstein):


yes please...reclaiming the authority of the imagination and emotion in a world overrun and drowning in a deluge of on screen cliche imagery (word and picture) and oh so clever copies of copies of copies....reality is boring, want to see imagination.

"My great wish is to learn to change and remake reality. I want my paintings to be inaccurate and anomalous in such a way that they become lies, if you like, but lies that are more truthful than literal truth." van gogh

A terrific, insightful post Lawrence...

Thanks so much for your kind comments, Bill.

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.
