A minor miracle--production has been speeded up on my new book of translation of Surrealist Benjamin Péret's The Big Game (Le grand jeu.) He was André Breton's best friend, and an uncompromising life-long Surrealist. When I started translating him, he acted like a squirrel, but once I got to know him, he whispered in my ear and helped me out.
Black Widow Press has brought into American literature all the Dadaists and Surrealists. They did a beautiful job on my volume of Eluard's Last Love Poems. I'll read for them in New Orleans--will post the date soon.
Mean time, are any of you Red Roomers fans of Surrealism? It would be great to find some reviewers of the book. Let me know if you would like a review copy.

Meanwhile, I wish you all the best in your writing life--and in your "real" life! But which is more real?
