|Myles: Coming to Montreal October 8|
- Calling young architects or writers interested in architecture...The Maison de l'Architecture du Quebec announces the 4th edition of the MAQ Young Critic in Architecture award for writing about architecture (scroll down for English version). The theme is A Library for the 21st Century and the deadline is November 15 but all those interested must register before November 1st.
- After more than a dozen books, writer Eileen Myles is starting to get her due. Vulture has a nice long piece on her but Myles will also be here in Montreal at Drawn & Quarterly on October 8th. This is on the occasion of a new collection of poems, I Must be Living Twice (which contains some of her earlier work as well) and the re-release of her best-known novel, Chelsea Girls.
- Miles Davis in Nine Parts.
- I recently came across this interesting interview with poet Anne Carson on visual art including the work of her partner, Robert Currie, but also on the work of Icelandic visual artist Ragnar Kjartansson, photographer Kim Anno and several others. Carson's latest work is Red Doc>.
- I want this book: Bohumil Hrabal's 1965 collection of short stories, Mr Kafka and Other Tales From the Time of the Cult. Never before published in English, Hrabal's stories explore the every day lives of Czech's factory workers with the idea that we learn more about a character and life in general by considering the small moments of every day life.
