Andy Fitch has interviewed 60 poets about their latest books, and I am one of those poets. We talk mostly about actual fjords, indexes, love/death, Anne Carson’s Short Talks, etc. We do not talk at all about minor things like dirt, the name of schools of philosophy, mood and not having a mood, the correct time.  Ugly Duckling Presse will publish these collected interviews in 2013. This interview was recorded last June right after Fjords came out, and can be read here now as a part of The Conversant, which is a part of the March issue of The Volta.

If you didn’t get enough of my Fjords tour photos on this blog, the Julia Miller, of Manual Cinema fame, has been cooking up her own Fjords tour photos over on her blog. And if you can’t get enough of that, I’m cooking up a tiny little Fjords tour documentary. So, hold tight. Hold tight.

Tonight, Manual Cinema and I will be on the Lower East Side at the Poetry Project at St. Marks. I feel like this.

Manual Cinema and I have landed in NYC and we’ll be camping out here for the week. Come see Fjords tonight at The Tank, or at Labrynth Books in Princeton tomorrow, or at the WRtRLtWRtW series Thursday night, or at the Poetry Project at St. Marks Church Friday night. Ok? Ok. Now I’m going to take a quick nap.

Fjords made Weekender on WBEZ! Alison Cuddy just told everybody about FJORDS on Chicago Public Radio. There’s a podcast of it if you want to listen in.

Good news for those who have yet to purchase Fjrods tickets. The Poetry  Foundation will open two additional matinees: Saturday at 2pm and Sunday  at 2pm.  Buy them here before they sell out.

The Fjords shows at the Poetry Foundation in Chicago are now all sold out, though I’m told there may be a few tickets at the door each night. And we’re working on having a fifth encore show somewhere on Monday night. Stay tuned.
