This month we're reading Magdalena Zurawski's The Bruise. It reminded me of H.D. and Elizabeth Smart. Some sort of melding of their styles. Moments not stripped down to their bare bones, but described in impossible detail, pages on one single moment, breath, look, thought.
I got some suggestions for future reading too. Jackie Kay's Trumpet sounds pretty interesting. Lucy Jane Bledsoe has a new book, The Big Bang Symphony, that looks really good. Also, it's a book that comes with a trailer. Very amusing. And lastly, Shamim Sarif's latest book I Can't Think Straight looks really good. I follow her on facebook. She's a busy woman. Shamim is equally accomplished as an author and film director and this book is being made into a movie starring Lisa Ray. Uh, I'm in! Adding to reading list immediately. And we have to arrange to see the movie too. Yes, I said "have to." What.
