On Pandering: How to Write Like a Man November 28, 2015

I’m going to have to check into this writer, too. Lots to think about.

What an amazing essay by Claire Vaye Watkins. Her novel Gold Fame Citrus is on my “I need to read this soon” list.

A taste:

Let us embrace a do-it-yourself canon, wherein we each make our own canon filled with what we love to read, what speaks to us and challenges us and opens us up, wherein we can each determine our artistic lineages for ourselves, with curiosity and vigor, rather than trying to shoehorn ourselves into a canon ready made and gifted us by some white fucks at Oxford.

Lovely. May your holidays bring you peace and joy.

I love old holiday postcards. I started collecting them when I found a few dozen in a box of things that were in his grandmother’s house. I like the art nouveau feel of the leaves in this card.

I hope you all have a restful, turkey-filled day tomorrow.
