« The Tender Trap: Happy Anniversary, Sweetie | Main | Late Summer Reading (part 2): Rosie Schaap's Drinking with Men [by Moira Egan] »

August 16, 2013


More is always Better in the Meaning of The Purity of Truth, i.e., "The Writer"!!!

I haven't read most of his work but have found some of his poems and stories to be really great. Also, his final novel, "Pulp," which appeared at almost the same moment as his death, is a witty and poignant final statement.

I agree with Mitch S in as much as I haven't read most of his work but like some of the poems read between tokes on top of Mount Pernicious are great such as the ones quoted, and his novels which I have read two of them at least are better than realistic and also definitely as witty and poignant as death, with thanks for the simile (smile).

Mount Pernicious is very nice, Al. Thanks.

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
