Two Fridays back I received my first package from Ugly Duckling Presse. My family and friends chipped in and got me the full subscription, meaning I'll get everything they publish this year (about 30 books in total). It was nice surprise to come to a mailbox full of books. The title of this post is taken from the first I've read of the bunch, a kind of post-beat/NY school collection by Filip Marinovich.
I also finished Calligrammes by Guillame Apollinaire. All in all, it's been a fruitful few weeks of reading. I'm currently reading The Return of the Native by Kate Colby.
A few more submissions have trickled in for the second issue. At this point, I think the issue will be more of a late summer/early fall affair due to my plan to switch apartment in July.
