What I'm reading

Lorine Niedecker's Collected Works. I can't stay with a poet I don't love, & a hundred pages in, I'm already reluctant to get to the end.

A selection of A. R. Ammons' North Carolina poems, an irresistible book I bought at City Lights books in Sylva, NC. Call me if you want me to read "Alligator Holes Down Along about Old Dock" to you.

Ecology of a Cracker Childhood by Janisse Ray, which I found in the Okefenokee a couple of years ago. She grew up in a junkyard in south Georgia.

A Julie Smith mystery in her Skip Langdon series.

A Supremely Bad Idea: Three mad birders and their quest to see it all by Luke Dempsey. Not sure I'm committed to it, even though it's funny and about birds.

A book about 19th-century French art, The Judgment of Paris, Ross King: the battle over official art, exemplified by Ernest Meissonier, and the new wave of Manet et al.

British author Patrick Leigh Fermor's memoir about walking from Belgium to Constantinople in the 1930s. It's in many parts & the kind of book you can dip into a little at a time.

Some essays by Orwell.

And more!
