The Well Nourished Moon [US]:
Here’s a thing about blurbs. You want to wish they could be used differently, like, hey, Catherine Meng, you should definitely read Kate Greenstreet’s chapbook Learning the Language. Of course that would be pretty limiting as an advert strategy: “hey! you one person! I think you’d like this. Or should read it for whatever reason.” Of course I just speed-read the first half with dinner and maybe that’s how it should go: twenty or thirty people, speed-read the book or chapbook or broadside and then shout out to the person you know who should read it most. Then go back and read it again more slowly and re-blurb to three other specific people. Blurb also sounds like something done involuntarily, right? I read this book, and then I blurbed. “Blurb! Excuse me!” But Catherine seriously you have got to read Kate Greenstreet.
