I just finished the first half of Eliot Weinberger’s The Ghosts of Birds, and am eager to work back to its progenitor, An Elemental Thing. Reading these enigmatic, essay-ish pieces is like walking alone through an impeccably curated museum with no placards. You’re left to discern your own patterns in the archaeological record of humanity’s inventive and ceaseless search for meaning.

My copy of Renee Gladman’s Prose Architectures just arrived; just happily staring at it for now. Am also wanting to steal a copy of the 600+-page Imagining Language from somewhere.

I just finished reading Sing, Unburied, Sing and it is one of the most haunting novels that I have read in a very long time. Jesmyn Ward is unmatched in terms of her talent. Be prepared though: The novel will knock the wind out of you and yet at the same time, give you hope that lingers for days.
