Eileen Myles

Coming soon to a reading series near youEileen Myles from Monofonus Press on Vimeo. More on Myles from Emily Gould. There was a sense of permission implicit in Myles’s writing; it might have been just the idea that your stories didn’t have to contain large frilly descriptive passages about how everything in a room looked...

By Grand Central Station I Sat Down & Wept

Jack Gilbert once told me only a fool writes first of love, or directly of love, though first love is often fuel for all writing. I was going to say, what else compels us to write? Then I thought about constraint. I think conceptual tactics can be a bit like engaging with a lover. Desire...

A Brief Conversation with Michael Nardone

LH: Michael, thanks for the post on the Gulf this summer, and part two earlier this week. MN: My pleasure, Sina.

This “pulled from my shelves” series will be my weekly exploration of concrete and conceptual books which I think have been overlooked or under-discussed; a chance to bring some texts out “from the vault”, dust them off and see where they lead…I...

Gaga for Gaga or Is the Lady Conceptual?

Vanessa Place on the wunderkind over at Gaga Stigmata What Gaga does is force a confrontation with our lack of theoretical apparatus for making sense out of our current no-nonsense. Postmodernism will not do, as it rests upon the gap for existence, and there’s no neo- for this confounding to return to. A kind of...

derek beaulieu on How to Write

In my last post I shared a video of derek beaulieu reading from his book of conceptual fiction How to Write. Using the power of the interwebs, I was also able to ask beaulieu some questions about his new book…Helen: You’ve called How to Write a work of conceptual fiction. Why do you think of...

Ah the Peg, oh the Forks

I love you Geist, and thanks for the newsletter with its variousness.But are you really saying Winnipeg is this boring?The Hound will be reading in her old, old, old stomping grounds this Friday for the first time ever. In fact, I believe I will be staying somewhere either behind the lens, or to the right....

The more things digitize the more we return to the printed page.

I’m fumigating at the moment (fleas, sowbugs, clothing moths). Akin to moving, only you move right back in to the same apartment. This is why I missed Lisa Robertson and Eileen Myles read at the charles h. scott gallery on Saturday, which I’m certain was all kinds of woman rock star writer awesomeness. Over the...
