I'm moving out. We all are. So long, Bierce Library. The UA Press will now be moving to Quaker Square. I will have an office with a big, scary button on the wall. They tell me it is no longer functional, but maybe if I push it hard enough.
In light of my looming po-cation, today I had to clean out the Press office I inherited from Elton Glaser years ago. It was kind of sad. I was surprised at how quickly we stripped it down.
I left a matchbook in the desk drawer. Elton left it there, and it didn't seem to want to be disturbed. I took several note pads from bookstores that no longer exist, which I also inherited from Elton. See above re: kind of sad.
But I have a bunch of really tasty cherries, so life is still good.
Not sure what this po-cation is going to be like. Earlier in the week I was thinking I might chicken out and maybe not do it. But now I am all for it. Perhaps it's time to make a list. At least a list of books I plan to read.
Oh, and go check out my little interview at The Collagist. Unless you're too busy eating cherries.
