Just so you and I can keep track, here are my latest pieces on this world-wide web of ours:

1. a “review” of Joan Didion’s classic book, The White Album, up on the Faster Times.

2. an analysis of the poetry in the hate speech of the Rev. (for “reviled,” of course) Fred Phelps, Mr. God Hates Fags himself; this is up on the reliably fascinating Killing the Buddha.

3. a review of A Heartbeat and a Guitar, a book about Johnny Cash’s strange and brilliant album Bitter Tears, on the Faster Times as well.
