Hi Lindsey,

My comment, too cryptic to be bitchy, and not really intended that way anyway, failed to take into account that Eileen's not just "ours," but a journalist, essayist, travel writer, fictionista, queer icon, etc. The packed house at Powell's last night--almost none of them poets so far as I could tell (not too surprising, since it wasn't a poetry reading)--reminded me how many people besides poets care to see/talk/houseparty with the Mylester.

Rodney, it's so true! She's all over the map and so fascinating. I was only able to see her reading at Moe's and missed the beginning at that. She has quite a presence. Did she read from The Importance of Being Iceland at Powell's?

p.s. I assumed your comment was meant jokingly and I'm sorry if my response was abrupt. I think I was pretty out of my mind tired and stressed out when I wrote them but felt it necessary to acknowledge your comment. That's lazy blogging on my part. Please say hello to Portland for me.
