More on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside

Congratulations to the editor’s of this book for winning the Ryga Award, named after playwright George Ryga, whose play The Ecstasy of Rita Joe was the first Canadian play I ever saw. Maggie De Vries apparently won the inaugural award for Missing Sarah, which I have yet to read but will put it on my...

Fanny Howe

The Lives of a Spirit was originally published by Sun & Moon press in 1987. Last year nighthboat books republished it with a coda: Glasstown: Where Something Got Broken. I’ve had the book for several weeks now, and in that time I have had an intense relationship with it, picking it up, reading a page,...

I’m finally beginning to get to my half-finished posts…I’ll start with Hesse.

Everyone is talking about Eva Hesse, the visual artist who placed her finger on the pulse of minimalism, altering its course profoundly in her brief, but stellar career.

As if,when he says, Oh,naked and inside. Does what happensmean the thingthat happensor is the meaning of what happenssomething else again. Is everything that...

Sonny is one of the most exciting texts I’ve encountered in some time. Thin, agile, light as air, and condensed to the point of delirious richness, it possesses the sort of elasticity that I find irresistible. Bed time reading, subway reading, a steady companion in a narrative way–there is propulsion–but also in the random entry....

The Libertine

It took a while to get back to The Libertine, but I’ve finally had occasion to see the movie and have nothing but praise for everything from the photography, to the script, to the direction, costume, and thankfully, the acting itself. I was not convinced that Johnny Depp could pull off Rochester, that most lurid...
