Library Pockets on New Books
The Strange Library by Murakami is the Harvill edition from the UK. I discovered that the illustrations in the US edition are entirely different when I read this article in the New Yorker. I'll write more about Murakami's delightfully odd novella in the future.
I haven't yet done more than dip in and out of Toronto poet Jay MillAr's Timely Irreverence (Nightwood Editions), but here's a bit in honour of today's big snowfall:
"Winter opens frenetic doors, the stuffs of poems / spill out--we're snowed in again"
Now, off to work I go.
