Cotner's & Fitch's TEN WALKS / TWO TALKS
& Glaser's HEROES ARE SO LONG
From uglyducklingpresse.com: Ten Walks/Two Talks updates the meandering and meditative form of Basho’s travel diaries. Mapping 21st-century New York, Cotner and Fitch tap their predecessor’s collaborative tendencies in order to construct a descriptive/dialogic fugue. The book combines a series of sixty-minute, sixty-sentence walks around Manhattan and a pair of dialogues about walking—one of which takes place during a late-night “philosophical” ramble through Central Park.
From HEROES ARE SO LONG:
here’s some romance (!)
go stuff your face
