Into the Madness

By Gabrielscala

Welcome to the world again. Now that you’re here, do you like the way you move?

–Johnny Blackthorn, “Into the Madness”

Hello again.

Quite a lot has happened in the literary world during The Great AngelSpeak Hiatus of 2011. Jennifer Egan not only won the much coveted Rooster, she also won the Pulitzer for her novel A Visit from the Goon Squad; Tom Franklin won the LA Times Book Prize for his mystery/thriller, Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter; and a British library took the plunge and paid £32,000 for the email archive of poet Wendy Cope.

That last one still has me grinning. That’s 53,000 US dollars and change. For emails. From a poet.

Awesomeness.

In not-so-literary news: our kitchen renovation went smoothly; Buford the bloodhound had eye surgery; and I learned to make pies from scratch. I also learned (Hopefully. We’ll see.) to search out some balance between real-life and blogging. I am wretchedly behind on the Poets & Writers’ prompts – but I’m working on it and will back date them to the appropriate weeks as I finish them. Poetry Weekly is also back dated and should be on-time from here on out. You can find links to both of them by clicking their representative tabs at the top menu.

Lest you think I’ve been completely slacking – we have some ridiculously wonderful posts coming this week including interviews with the Country Dog Review’s editor, Danielle Sellers and poet-extraordinaire: Annie Finch. Stay tuned for all that and more, and, as always, thanks for reading.
