Now that it's September, and feeling like September, with the remnants of a hurricane cooling us with a week's worth of rain, a little news: my review of Holly Karapetkova's debut collection, Words We Might One Day Say, appears in the new issue of the D.C.-based journal Lines+Stars. Read it if you get a chance. I seriously enjoyed and recommend the book in question. The rest of the issue is worth checking out, too, with the theme of "Distractions & Amusements." Now that it's September, of course, I'm wishing I had taken more vacations this summer. But even though we mostly "staycated" this year, we did manage to get in some distraction and amusement. Now it's back to business. Mostly.
