The following are texts I return to over and over. More are always being added--check back again soon!

A Politics of Mere Being by Carl Phillips | Can we only be political when we are speaking to specific issues of identity, exclusion, injustice?

Kelly Link's introduction to The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter | I was a child. I read like a child, for pleasure, and in order to figure out what the rules were, and what price you paid when you broke those rules. And again, as an adult it seemed to me that I was breaking the rules by continuing to read and reread the things that pleased me best. 

The Beautiful Art of Cruising by Garth Greenwell | Both poetry and cruising are arts of loneliness and the assuagement of loneliness.
