Michael Cunningham on Print vs. E-books


The author of several novels, including The Hours, Flesh and Blood, and By Nightfall, has had it with readers who "stand in front of the bullet train of history" and insist that books must be made out of paper—as this video from inReads makes abundantly clear.

The Anne Sexton—Peter Gabriel Connection


Linda Gray Sexton's memoir Searching for Mercy Street: My Journey Back to My Mother, Anne Sexton, originally published in 1994 by Little, Brown, was just rereleased in paperback by Counterpoint Press. Anne Sexton herself wrote a play titled Mercy Street, and a posthumous book of poetry, 45 Mercy Street, was published in 1976, two years after she committed suicide. In 1986, Peter Gabriel released his fifth album, So, which includes the song "Mercy Street," dedicated to the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet.
