A Future That Never Arrives: Some thoughts on Matt Rasmussen’s BLACK APERTURE

There are some books that resurface: a friend finally gives back the borrowed copy, you find them under furniture, or stuffed behind others on a shelf, but when they return to you, it really feels like a return and you immediately get to rereading. When do books become a part of us? Why do some feel like we’ve always known them? We all have our own literary canon. And here’s one of mine that recently fell back into my life: Matt Rasmussen’s debut collection BLACK APERTURE.

From the Land of Saints and Scholars

As the great, great granddaughter of an Irish Immigrant, my Irish roots run as deep as the emerald moss that grows upon the Wicklow mountains. It is estimated that over 33 million Americans can trace their heritage to Ireland and the great diaspora that took place in the 1800’s. It doesn’t take St. Patrick’s Day to send my heart back to the Emerald Isle, but with that celebratory day upon us, what better time to reconnect with your Irish roots by delving in to some Irish Literature? Here are just a few to enjoy while sipping a Guinness or a spot of tea.

The Telling is the Art: A Look at Lee Martin’s LATE ONE NIGHT

I remember attending a reading at a downtown art gallery in Nacogdoches in 2009. The author was Lee Martin, still fresh as a Pulitzer Prize finalist for his novel THE BRIGHT FOREVER, of which he read from that evening. At the time, I was purely bent on reading contemporary poetry, but Martin’s reading that night rattled me and I (along with a line of others) rushed the signing table afterwards and purchased his novel. It’s still one of the best readings I’ve been to.
