I'm delighted to report that the silky, terrifying, sexy, grumbling, girl-next-door voice of Susan Walker will return to my next podcast. Last night we recorded parts of Boone Barnaby with Susan's chameleon-voice covering about half a dozen small parts. I've got some vacation ahead plus the distractions of readying Clear Heart for publication, so the completed podcast of Boone Barnaby won't be available until October. But I think you'll find it's worth the wait.
Meanwhile John Nemerovski took some photos of me for the Clear Heart book jacket. I always thought I should pose wearing my beat-up old leather tool belt, sagging with too many tools and nails and garbage, but instead here I am standing in front of my bookshelf surrounded by Richard Brautigan, E E Cummings, James Dickey, Carl Sandburg, Robert Creeley, Jane Hirshfield, Ogden Nash, Erin Noteboom, William Carlos Williams, Frank O'Hara... Nice company for an author.
