I'm listening to Ned Rorem and related stuff on Pandora. Did you know he's from Indiana? I just learned that. He was one of several famous people on hand last night at the Poetry Project to celebrate Kenward Elmslie's 80th birthday. A nice old-school-New-York-school evening. Ron Padgett and Ann Lauterbach also read some Elmslie things. As did two Bills, Berkson and Corbett. Padgett read from The Orchid Stories, a novel or maybe story collection that's going to be reissued soon. The bits he read sounded insane, so I'm very much looking forward to acquiring this book upon its publication.
