Well, it was great to drive to New York and attend the Publishing Triangle Awards. My book was a finalist in the gay men's poetry category (the award has just been named for Thom Gunn, which is sweet), right beside books by D.A. Powell and Carl Phillips (who won, of course). Sweet, too, to see Maureen Seaton win for Venus Examines Her Breast. And I fell out of my chair when Edward Field started his speech as Eve Harrington (from "All About Eve"--if you had to ask, go rent the movie right now).
Wish I could have stayed for days. I heart New York.
