Ooooooohyeah yes yes Lady Hempel often comes and teaches/speaks during the MFA program periods. She isn’t a faculty member for undergrads, but she is BFFs with our spring term faculty member, Doug Bauer (check out his book: http://www.uiowapress.org/books/2013-fall/what-happens-next.htm). I read her book, Reasons to Live, in his Masters of Style lit class, and damn. Mama knows how to write. It’s possible to work for the MFA program over FWT, in which case, you could potentially meet her!
Keep on readin,
I really enjoy thunderstorms. The sound, the air. I don’t know if I should enjoy them — I mean, I’m sure more accidents happen during a thunderstorm than during a sunny day. And I’m sure I’d be tired of thunderstorms if I had them every day.
But I’ll go with that anyway.
summer is real cute until every fuckin type of insect comes out of the 8th circle of hell
So for Reviewsday Tuesday, here is my suggestion: “Reasons to Live” by Amy Hempel. A short story collection, this is beautiful and intriguing writing. For those somewhat confused about life and the strange characters surrounding us.
If you do pick it up and want a taste of Amy hempel’s writing, I suggest reading the story, “The Cemetery Where Al Jolson is Buried.”

Prague Astronomical Clock
They blinded the guy who designed and built it so he’d never be able to build another one. It is the oldest working astronomical clock in the world.
