I AM AN ORCHID

Poet/friend Mike Young and I are thrilled to have our debut albums up on the extraordinary Black Cake website. Click around there for awhile and you'll have some cool company.




I've been having a good summer reading these gems of books. Each pic has a link to it. Dryland doesn't officially come out until 9/15. The D.H. Lawrence book you can get at most used books stores.








I'm really happy to have my story "Pee On Water" alongside heroes like Joy Williams and George Saunders in Ben Marcus's anthology NEW AMERICAN STORIES. I linked it to Amazon, but it should be at most good book stores...

New Year!

Dear Internet,
I'm so thrilled to be the judge for the Ruth Stone First Book Prize! This is a contest for non-male writers who have yet to publish a book. Big Lucks is one of the coolest new presses alive!

If you feel behind in your fiction reading, check out this end-of-year roundup by Jacob Kaplan at Impose. And while you're at it, his band Perfect Teeth's first official album.


Check out this Bowie gif JT found!






Thank you to the great Heather Christle for putting some new poems of mine up at PEN.


Old SNL skit I love:
