did you receive mass tarp sky email today?

well, x-tian peet, loveliest, did a lil mass email release of all the new books out from tarp sky this spring--joanna ruocco, traci o'connor, kim gek lin short, & mine. now i been out in the yard weeding for what feels like all day & was well on my way down to brushfire bbq to get a pulled pork sandwich--& then i read the email. & then i laughed & laughed. i just love to hear what folks say of the book & it tickled me that he wrote: "an avant-Southern hybrid hailing from syntactic hinterlands where the farm meets the backlot of the Piggly Wiggly." Love it!




here's the whole bit:

and Shelly Taylor's Black-Eyed Heifer, a "a mighty anthem to down home local culture" (Brenda Iijima) and a "radically innovative use of language" (Jim Harrison), an avant-Southern hybrid hailing from syntactic hinterlands where the farm meets the backlot of the Piggly Wiggly.

go buy my gorgeous gorgeous book if you have not. i think small press distribution should have copies any day now! xo--
