Just in from the master letterpress printer & poet —
ever thanks, Clifford!

The Academy of Accidental Art


Simply, if you are already reading Ingeborg Bachmann, Thomas Bernhard, Paul Celan,
Robert Calasso, and even Franz Kafka (the grand papa of this group)
you will want to read Fleur Jaeggy, born in Zurich in 1940, Swiss
native long ago moved into the Italian pantheon and
translated by the likes of Tim Parks and now
Gini Alhadeff —
New Directions Books is Jaeggy's American home.

I am the Brother of XX (New Directions 2017)

Joseph Brodsky said, 
“Reading time … four hours. 
Remembering time ... the rest of one’s life.”
