Seek Giacometti’s “The Palace at 4 a.m.” Go back two hours. See towers and curtain walls of matchsticks, marble, marbles, light, cloud at stasis. Walk in. The beggar queen is dreaming on her throne of words…You have arrived at the web home of Marly Youmans, maker of novels, poetry collections, and stories, as well as the occasional fantasy for younger readers.

peek at Glimmerglass
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.

Wow. Just.... Wow.ReplyDelete
You have the most stunningly beautiful book covers in the known universe (and possibly beyond), thanks to Clive Hicks-Jenkins, and to your good judgment in having selected him to design and create them.
Got up at 4:45 (what we do for sports-mad children!) and am addled but still can see your sterling wisdom! Thank you. It's really a tribute to the mysteries of friendship,penpals, and kindred spirits.
I have a good many artist friends, but somehow this friendship pointed inexorably toward collaboration! It just happened, rather than being chosen in any way--more like a plant growing up.
Thank you for the lovely compliment to Clive, which I am sure he will like!
p. s. On the facebook thread, the director of the press said September 1, 2014 would be a safe guess for pub date... I add it here because I always forget such things, dates not being safe in my brain!ReplyDelete
It is gorgeous! And your collaboration was the inspiration for the book of ekphrastic poems I subsequently wrote. When it is done, I wonder if he would be interested in looking at it?ReplyDelete
