Notes in May 2021

In reading about writing, I’ve been enjoying Amitava Kumar’s Everyday I Write the Book. More about that soon.

In writing about writing, I’ve just shared my thoughts about the recent Poets & Writers book, which covers the gamut (Ed. Kevin Larimer and Mary Gannon). P&W is one of my favourite trade magazines too.

In reading about reading, I am still reading Wendy Lesser’s Scandinavian Noir. Her book on rereading is a longtime favourite.
