â€¢ Rich posts his own list of influences. Good stuff, especially his list of musical recordings. If there was one CD I would want my body of work to sound like, it would be Prodigy Present: The Dirtchamber Sessions Volume One. Just thought I’d share that.
â€¢ Latino Stories puts out its Top 10 “New” Latino Authors to Read. Nice to see one poet on this list, even if it is for fiction.
â€¢ Among the New York Times’ 100 Notable Books of 2008 are Robert BolaÃ±o’s 2666 and Juan Felipe Herrera’s Felipe Herrera’s Half of the World in Light.
