Too Many Books to Read, Not Enough Lives

This from an interview with Eleni Sikelianos, whose work I met last summer and have since adored.

My most place-specific work seems to appeal to readers in the widest range of places. But that is the truth of place — it carries every other place in it, historically, psychically, or potentially. It’s true in a very real, material way — how our commodity demands wreak havoc in other parts of the world, and in all that has been exported or imported from and to a place, in terms of peoples, fauna, flora.}

The whole interview is here.
