Last night a simply incredible storm broke right over my house, and apparently knocked out power to a lot of the city. I watched The X-Files in the dark (though that was actually just so I could see the lightning – we were fine) and tried (but failed) to walk Paul in a drizzly slow period. (He went half a block and then looked at me like I was trying to kick him.)

Today the wonderful people at Electric Literature’s Recommended Reading are running an excerpt from The Daughters, recommended by Tara Ison. I am all the excitement about this. It is rad. It is happening. The world is full of vibrant noise.

Less than a week until the official release date!
