I have not been blogging as much lately for a few pronounced reasons: my job is demanding a lot of me lately, which is fine, but I also edit a literary journal, am working a few volumes of poetry, frankly trying to market that poetry while being out of the literary world of the States, read manuscripts for Zero books, and sometimes reviewing for Hong Kong Review of Books.
I am not going away; simply don’t have time for as much work here. Furthermore, this blog has a low readership compared to my other blogs. I don’t do as many interviews for it explicitly.
More will be coming soon as I started writing a post about my travels in Turkey and Egypt, but didn’t want to sound like an entitled expatriate pontificating on cultures that I live around but don’t necessarily comprehend all that well.
