Equipment for Living

My big face is pleased to announce that I am working on a book of criticism, to be published by Simon & Schuster, tentatively titled Equipment for Living. (I stole the title from Kenneth Burke’s essay “Literature as Equipment for Living.”)

This amazing, restorative, soothing, angry, beta-blocking book will cannibalize some of my previously published literary & music criticism, & will also contain new stuff, essays about my education in poetry & popular music. And about my love of Taylor Swift.

And here is a picture of Perdita:
