In Which She Clicks Her Heels Together & Blinks

H-O-M-E. Where life is sweet, and the bathrooms are private, and the laundry’s in the back room.

I came home to find a copy of one of my most-anticipated reads of the year, Liz Hand‘s Generation Loss — sadly, it’s going to have to wait a couple of weeks, until my first packet of work is turned in. In the meantime, here’s the wondrous opening paragraph:

There’s always a moment where everything changes. A great photographer — someone like Diane Arbus, or me during that fraction of a second when I was great — she sees that moment coming, and presses the shutter release an instant before the change hits. If you don’t see it coming, if you blink or you’re drunk or just looking the other way — well, everything changes anyway, it’s not like things would have been different.

  1. I just got it, too, and cannot wait!! I heard her read the beginning in Ft. Lauderdale last year and it blew me away.

  2. She said it very well could be mycoplasma, though she wasn’t sure (I had to see the PA, instead of the Dr) or just a bacterial thing in my lungs. Treatment is same and now I’m on antibiotics!
