Come tomorrow 9am I’ll be airbound for Iowa City and Prairie Lights (for a reading to later be broadcast — I think — here), then St. Olaf College, then Minneapolis, then Milwaukee. I’ll report in full when I return; until then, there are a couple of solipsistic links I’ve been meaning to share:

  • Dan Green wrote a really thoughtful essay on the use of dialogue in Under the Small Lights at his excellent Reading Experience 2.0
  • My review of Michael Lewis’ ghastly story The Big Short is live at this month’s Open Letters: The Bestseller Issue
  • The Crisis, an old poem with a new proofread, is included in Michael Schiavo’s new PDF project The Equalizer. Download & forward!
  • President Obama at Prarie Lights Books
