Tweedly-jolly for Glimmerglass!

I'm busy writing a guest blog post and then must do some ornery tasks that are singing my name in gutturals and shrills... So just for fun, here's a bit of welcome for Glimmerglass from the editor of Books and Culture:

  1. Having read it at a previous stage, I already know it will be one of my favorite books of the year
  2. Major new arrival from Mercer Univ. Press: galley of Glimmerglass, new novel by

    2. We'll just have to wait and see. But since I never go anywhere without a ball of string, I feel relatively safe.

    3. That made me laugh! I hadn't thought of that--the necessity of carrying string in this maze of a life! Shall have to add some to the contents of my bag.

    1. Very good of you, Tim! I do think that it's going to be one of the world's prettiest books, and I hope you like what the words say as well...

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
