MAY: FROM THE TABLE

We are nearing the finish line for our new volume, which will be coming out in the next few weeks. For the moment, we are all busy here copy-editing and arguing over the correct capitalization of the “Internet“. We’re particularly excited about our guest poet interview — stay tuned for news of our release date and a look at our new cover.

The final submissions were read last week alongside one-of-several fine bottles of Napa Valley Merlots to be got at Trader Joes under 10 dollars (“If anybody orders Merlot then I’m leaving; I am not drinking any @#$%ing merlot!”-Paul Giamatti’s finest moment); Maui Brewing Company’s Aloha B’ak’tun, a Belgian stout brewed with chocolate and spices (meh-solid C); and for the avant-garde palates, Mikkeller’s Mexas Ranger, an English ale brewed with spices, almond milk, cocoa, chili, black beans, and avocado leaves (much better and more harmonious than it sounds: B+).

A few of us are finishing up our preparation for our oral exams. You can find us at the Claremont Starbucks at any hour. We’re the ones sitting with a stack of books, mumbling authors’ names to ourselves. Wish us luck!
