Mixtape for the Doomed

I made a playlist for my novel Gravesend and it’s up at Largehearted Boy, my favorite site around. I love the Book Notes series, and I’m really honored to be included.

Also, I’ve got a story in the new issue of Needle: A Magazine of Noir, available 4/15.

And damn sad news the last couple of days. RIP Jesse Winchester and Peter Matthiessen.

Matthiessen’s Paris Review interview.

Currently listening to: Jesse Winchester, s/t; Reigning Sound, Live at Goner Records; Rachel’s, Music for Egon Schiele; The Afghan Whigs, Do the Beast; Mirah, Changing Light.

Watching: Caught up on Mad Men season 6 and think it’s my favorite so far, which is saying a hell of a lot. Saw Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel and thought it was goddamn perfect. Love the review on Letterboxd that starts this way:  “The Grand Budapest Hotel is the film with which Wes Anderson finally answers his critics, and the message could not be clearer or more immaculately embossed in Futura on an insert shot of the most delicate stationary: ‘Go fuck yourselves.'” Nails it.
