"One of the most important books ever to me is the glorious New Directions Collected Poems, 1912-1944 by H. D., as I was saying recently, 'that cover, that weight.' It was an undergrad college text I couldn't afford at the beginning of semester, but once I saw it I used the Christmas money from my maternal grandparents to go and get it. Much smaller and more recently: Green Integer's edition of Robert Bresson's Notes on the Cinematographer was nearly a pillow. Propped on my office desk at Wesleyan: the slim Prophecies (Hesperus Press) by Leonardo da Vinci and right behind it Tracey Emin's Strangeland (Sceptre)."
