John Wideman Has Won the Pulitzer

I just ordered it and can't wait for it to arrive. I haven't been this excited about a book in a long time. Check out the review here:

Depravities of War at 2nd Street Gallery

I wanted to put up some pictures from the panel discussion I was a part of at the end of March. The work on the wall behind me is Sandow Birk's, the man sitting to my right, and is part of his new exhibition, Depravities of War. It is a truly stunning body of work. Check it out if it comes your way.
