Reading Writing

Uh boy, so my photo short story book is coming along. I'm trying to read a bunch of other things to help me along. So I tried this book, Solitary Twin, which just didn't cut it for me. It's solid, mind you, but I wanted something more Borges like. Hoping to create something worthy of you, dear reader. In other news it's hot here in Seattle. This city is simply not made to handle even remotely hot days. So 85 and dry is a rough day. It bakes the city and the apartments since few have AC and even fewer have proper ventilation.

The weather will only get warmer.

And yet people still are building apartments with those windows that  barely open. 

Great. 

Anyhows...

What are you reading that's decent?

The Vision and the Text

Also labeled: please name me your best graphic novels (or most eclectic). 

If you've been following me, you'll know that I've regressed from novels to shorts and essays and, gasp, been working more and more with the visual. Some of it is documenting what has really happened (or this),  trying to move away from the paralyzed cyclops that is photography and its forced perspective, to say nothing of its thin slice of time and also to try and map one's experience, which could very well tie into fiction (and knowing me, I will and am currently working on this). 

Nevertheless, there's a problem I'm working on: taking a story and making it physical. This could be with photos, or with something else. I do want to hear from people who have experienced the story IRL form.

Insta Classic!

Just finished the brutal, incisive Human Acts, by  Han Kang. Not sure what I thought when I started. I don't think I had great expectations, though I did assume it would be good. In fact, I thought it would be about a massacre and expected it to be brutal. But oh my. As a writer, I can respect how she moved away from the injustice of a singular act and showed how it tore into the entire social fabric. Brilliant, I'm telling you, just brilliant!
Now I have just finished a book (and will be re reading it soon) that is easily in the best of the 21st century list and might be in the best of all time list. Don't miss it, seriously.

Some Collages Were Just Published

Hey, so I've been working hard on my photographs as a way to tell more than a single frame story. We'll see where it leads, but here it is.  Hopefully you like it, and if you have any ideas whatsoever, go ahead and share them!
