“How To Catch A Fly In A Dark Room”


I had the great honor last night of introducing Alan Ziegler and his anthology Short: An International Anthology of Short Prose at the home of Michael and Karen Braziller. The room was ripe with warmth and love for this tremendous poet, editor, and mentor to many. What a wonderful night amidst dear friends whom I have long admired. The Believer has published my introduction online this afternoon at The Logger. Please check it out here and read about “how to catch a fly in a dark room,” “the spectator as prince,” and the “artistic uncoupling from the actual.”  Order your copy of the anthology here.
