"Not since I read the title poem of Sharon Olds’ electric first collection, Satan Says, have I been so mesmerized by the power of a poet to inhabit and alter religious imagery to explore essential human truths—among them, the yearning for knowledge, the persistence of uncertainty, the limitations of language. If the artist is not a mere transcriber of life’s experiences, but one who translates experience into another form, a creation we would call art, then Young is an exemplary artist indeed."
Still reeling after one of the kindest and certainly one of the most widely read reviews of THE HOLY GHOST PEOPLE we’ve received yet. Thanks so much again to the Rumpus & to Julie Marie Wade, and check it out.
lookatallthisstuff asked: Hey John, will there be an audiobook for Wolf in White Van? More importantly, will you be reading it?
I put off answering this question until we were done tracking. I just finished doing the reading for the audiobook just now. Literally just now. I am typing from the couch behind the mixing board. Scott Solter recorded it and now we’re going to put some spectral ghostly instrumental music together to lightly thread through the reading here and there.
It’s really interesting reading the whole book through, I haven’t listened back to it yet but I feel like it heads out into some pretty remote interior places, and I’m excited to record the music and see how it fits together!
Welp, this is amazing. New music + John Darnielle narrated audiobook. Swoon.
Fidel, the famous golden labrador of Bruges.
From the photo albums of every tourist who visits this Belgian city, to a cameo in the film In Bruges, Fidel has won the world’s hearts with his habit of watching the canal from a window at the Côté Canal bed and breakfast.
I like this dog.
