Links of Interest

Re-Imagining the Final Thoughts of the Beheaded by Jacki Lyden. I found a link to readings from this book on NPR. The blurb reads:

The premise for each story in Robert Olen Butler's new book is disturbing. Severance recalls the last thoughts of those who have been decapitated. St. George, Marie-Antoinette, Medusa, Anne Boyeln Sir Walter Raleigh, the Lady of the Lake ... In Butler's imagining, their last words are poetic and brief, and reveal what is most precious about being alive.This sounds interesting to me. I wonder if any of you have read it?

I love your blog and very much hope you will persist with it and your writing in general - I think it takes a heroine to balance a family life and a book so good on you!
