What We're Reading Now: Anne Sexton, more Solnit

Today the sun finally broke through the clouds in LA! It's been a slow, cloudy spring here, and we spent the morning in a Los Feliz coffeeshop reading Anne Sexton. 

Anne Sexton (b. 1928, d. 1974) was a popular American poet of the 1960s and 70s, Her talents developed rapidly, and her simple, forceful imagery and suburban realism made her work accessible. 

Some of our favorite poems were Starry NightThe Balance Wheel, and Just Once. What are some of your favorite poems?

We're also still carrying around another one of Rebecca Solnit's book, The Mother of All Questions--her work is too good!
