How pathetic is it that....

...after reading the excellent review, plus more, by pepino21786  of Glass Menagerie, when, during the Q&A, Randy says he's reading Hart Crane, I have to go out and buy Crane's complete works (#6 down the linked page)

AND I have to order the very same bio Randy says he's reading, Broken Tower

AND, at the very end of review (after pepino's pics) where pepino's friend snagged some info from a local magazine, when Randy answers a question about what's on his iPod, I have to go running to the iTune Store and download two of them, Brian Eno and Lou Reed...geez.

It's also kind of pathetic that it took me half an hour to compose this post, with two edits and counting, but at least I was able to do it...something I would not've even considered doing just two short months ago.

I also checked out both those books. I'm not very interested in poetry in multiple doses however when I read the sample chapter of Broken Tower it looked quite good. I probably would have bought it had it not been out of stock.

That just proves that Randy is good for our literary advancement. ;)

I ordered Broken Tower so it is available. If you'd like, I'll order one for you (you'll get my 30% discount). It is a backorder which means it will take around two weeks to get rather then our normal 3 day turn-around but it's no big deal.

I know what you mean about poetry, I've decided to think of Crane's collected works as a year-long journey, to be read around everything else but I love reading about poets.

Let me know, all I have to do is punch it into the computer at work. Once I have it I can just mail it to you.

If you can get the paperback version I would definitely be interested. Just let me know how much it is when you send it this way and I'll send you a check. Thank you! :D

Just to let you know, I did get the book but started reading it and realizing it was going to take me a while, I ordered a second copy which I can now send on to you if you are still interested, considered it a gift, something we can discuss as we go along. I've also gotten Crane's "letters" which is even longer then the bio. I'm going to read the bio and the letters before I even try to tackle his poetry.

I love the biographer's way of writing, he goes from a nice easy style when discussing life events but almost gets prosey when discussing the poetry.

Please send me you address by email and I will get it off to you. Gayle
