Jonathan Mayhew is reading Steve Benson's Blue Book. I like this book quite a bit. as JM notes, it invites a random reading. Benson carefully notes method of each work. I like to see that determination, with a random sense of play too. it doesn't seem like a book to read straight thru, as JM notes. Benson's methods seem based on function, how he goes about. he's not just treating the text, but his life in the making of it. I hope that doesn't sound stupid. one piece was written at a desk in the doorway of a room. that particular resonates for me.
