Then I am moving on to do a final polish on The Foliate Head, forthcoming from Stanza Press in the U.K. The Throne of Psyche is an unusually beautiful book: The Foliate Head will likewise be beautiful. It, too, will have a cover by Clive Hicks-Jenkins, and it will also have three foliate heads as the division pages. Scrumptious. I will be working on it with Clive and book designer Andrew Wakelin, who did the two sumptuous books in honor of Clive's 60th birthday retrospective.
I also need to get rereading for a review of Bei Dao's selected poems from New Directions. Any fans out there?
Thanks to all who put up with my over-busyness of late, and especially to those who have helped me get out the word about The Throne of Psyche. I am grateful. (Materials available on request for any other bloggers who want to help...)
More The Book of the Red King up soon.
