Practice practice practice

Lots of exciting things are afoot for November, including, for example, the election and the publication Kyle’s book. Live Nude Girl, on the other hand, won’t come out until a couple months after that. But my first solo poetry collection, Oneiromance (an epithalamion) is out right….now. You can see the front of the cover on Amazon and the Switchback website and etc, but you can see the super-pretty way the image wraps around from the front to the back right…here.

One of the tricks of The Live Nude Girl in the Devil’s Territory tour is to team up and read with a talented local writer everywhere we go. I’ll be doing a test run of that technique this Sunday night at 7:00 at the Hideout in Chicago, where I’ll be reading with the lovely and amazing Brandi Homan, editor in chief of Switchback Books, whose poetry collection Hard Reds just came out last summer. Also? There will be puppets and a band. So if any of you happen to live in Chicago or its environs, consider checking it out!
