Back in Love – an interview with the New York Times Magazine

Posted in Uncategorized by LBM on September 23, 2011

In an interview I did with Stacey Baker for the New York Times Magazine, I talk about the work I’m showing in Rome and San Francisco and my renewed affection for photography. Speaking of which, here’s a picture I took a few days ago:

On our Facebook and Tumblr pages, we give a nod to new books sent to us. I stole this idea from the great poetry blogger, Ron Sillman. I love receiving these books, but also feel a little guilty. I don’t have time to write to these generous contributors and give proper feedback. But I do look at everything that comes in. (If you look at my recent top 10+ list, a number of these books are unsolicited gifts).

One of the books on the list was Sebastien Girard’s Desperate Cars. This is an excellent book that deserves attention. Thank God for 5b4. Jeff Ladd just wrote an excellent review of this book.

Here at LBM we’re all a bit desperate for time (note the baby above). In two weeks we have two new books coming out. And down the hall Big Al’s is taking life.

All of this is to say that I truly appreciate the books that are sent and regret that I cannot give them more attention. But in the years to come I’m hoping to figure out a way to make our library accessible to more people. Perhaps an LBM Bookmobile?

Hey, Les.

I might be out of touch for a few days. Nothing personal. I’ve got some business to take care of down south. Kinda like Santa, but not nearly as many houses to break into to get the job done. Between the chimneys, I don’t know how much web access I’ll have. But I hope to find a way to weigh in now and then.

Be sure to see my last post, which was a response to your phallocentric-castrophobic Capon jumble. I’m not sure if this blog thing communicates about non-new posts.

Yrs, with seasoning.
