It was such a joy to find this beautiful postcard from @bookmateriality in the mail!
It is really something else to receive actual mail, actual snail mail, these days.
Thank you

simgessa "'Sevmekten söz ediyoruz' dedi. 'Bir yaprak, bir avuç tohum... İlk önce bunlarla başlayın. Sevmek nedir biraz öğrenin. Önce bir yaprağı, yağmurun yağışını, sonra o bir tek yaprağın size neler öğrettiğini, yağmurun içinizde neler yarattığını duyup anlayabilecek bir insan sevin. Kolay iş değil, biliyorum. Belki bir ömür boyu sürer. Bana da öyle oldu ya zaten, ama gene de istediğimi erişemedim, sadece istediğimin ne kadar gerçek olduğunu biliyorum: Doğanın bir yaşam dizisi olduğu gibi, sevmenin de bir sevgi dizisi olduğunu anladım.'" (s. 66)
İşte Capote böyle bir yazar. Bir akşam bir yargıca ağaç evin tepesinde bunları söyletebilir, ve çimenlerin türküsünü yankılatır kulağınızda...

jimmydelastyle I watched Bennett Miller's 'Capote' a few years ago, and I remember being fascinated with the brilliant performance of Phillip Seymour Hoffman (he went on to win an Oscar for his portrayal of Capote). But it wasn't until recently that I came across the book that inspired the film. 'In Cold Blood', originally published in serials in The New Yorker, depicts a fictionalized account of the brutal murders of The Clutter family in Holcomb, Kansas. Often referred to as the original non-fiction novel, it is filled with gory details and written with such beautiful lyricism. Capote's dominance of the English language leaves me with no other option than to devour the rest of his oeuvre. 16h

yahdon For the first day of classes last year, I brought out the Boston George--all white--fit. So today it's only right that I bring it back on the first day of classes for my last year in this MFA. As the bible says, and as my mother incessantly reminds me, "The first shall be last, and the last shall be first." Either way, it's lit #literaryswag #margiela #polo #ralphlauren #burberry #trumancapote #musicforchameleons #thenewschool #mfa #firstdayofclasses 18h
