Notes in January 2021

In reading about writing, I’ve been reading The Writer’s Practice by John Warner.

In writing about writing, Vol1Brooklyn has recently published my essay about Betty Smith’s willingness to examine the lives of low-wage and no-wage families, in an era when stories about poverty were frowned upon.

In reading about reading, about book-selling actually, I’ve been enjoying Honda’s manga series, Skullface Bookseller (2016).

And, in writing about reading, I’m working on a piece about how I travelled to New York City on the page when I was a girl, when crossing the street to go to the library was a big deal.
