I’m still stewing about that prune incident, and I’ll have more to say about it soon.
In the meantime, here are some links and other readings for you to consider, especially if you’re new to this blog. Here is a new story about Catamaran Literary Reader, which employs me as contributing editor, and another recent news report. Here are links and uncensored editorial reviews about my first book, The Cactus Eaters, which is a true story. I have gone ahead and republished and updated The Cactus Eaters FAQ. Also, here is story about my unfortunate run-in with the people at the Pain Quotidian bakery. Here is a podcast of my Catamaran talk with TC Boyle. And here is a blog post about my neighbor, who wants his housemates to touch him on the knee. By the way, I used to have a whole bunch of Catamaran and Cactus Eaters links on my home page, but I somehow pressed the wrong button and they all went away. That accidentally pressed button resulted in an instant unwanted streamline and instant redesign of my blog, which is looking a little too ‘aspirational yuppie” for my taste. I’ll have to call the good folks at Blogger and ask them how to bring my blog back to its old, clunky self and restore those missing links.
