Birthday, and wonderful letterboxings

Today was my Birthday - 24 on the 24th of August. And I was greeted by a wonderful package in my mailbox - a conglomeration of wonderful books and chaps from Dusie Press (curtosy of the wonderful Susana Gardner), all the way from Zurich, Switzerland. Everything in said package is wonderful, and I will be writing about such soon (also several prizes from Dancing Girl Press, which I have been criminally late in writing about).

Two other great chapbook arrivals, though not new publications, were Alice Notley's City Of, from Rain Taxi, and Tan Lin's Ambience is a Novel With a Logo, from Katalanche Press.

Happy birthday, Ross! Glad you got showered in chapbooks--sounds like a grand birthday.

Ross Brighton said...

Thanks Kate, I wouldn't have it any other way. Sorry I haven't posted on the DGP chap yet - I'm trying to get things sorted for next year, and it's quite hectic - Applications for universities, scholarships, residencies, grants - it's a lot of work.

No worries about that--take your time. Amelia's plane isn't going anywhere (bad joke).

Good luck w/ apps, etc!

Ross,

belated good cheer for your 24th. I'll buy you a drink or two on Wednesday.

Residencies eh? At Canty?

Take care,

Robert.

Hey dude, way late on your B-day - have been in Auckland as you know, sorting things.

Ross Brighton said...

Jared - fair enough. We should catch up soon, no?

Robert - Na - I might go for the Ursula Bethel residence, but that would be more for giggles than out of any feeling that I could possibly get it.
