9/9/15: The best book I've read in a while, A Manual For Cleaning Women by Lucia Berlin, is reviewed here. Also great is the Neapolitan series, four novels about a long, complicated female friendship, by Italian author Elena Ferrante, reviewed here. As for the most annoying book in a while, here's the lowdown on The Girl in The Spider's Web

9/9/15Five portraits from The Glen Rock of the Dead appeared as poems 67 - 71 at the Poem-a-Day countdown to 35 years of AIDS at the HIV Here and Now website, curated by Michael Broder.
