On Thursday, November 19, I will be launching my book of photography about Iceland. This is the life of the book after the end of the age of the book. It embodies the sufic tales of my new collection of ghazals, Two Minds. The Art of Haying is full of trolls, elves, horses, tricksters, street art, alternate forms of creativity and the state of books today. It steps off of the Northern Camino into the possibilities that come when you live past an entire age of the world as a pilgrim and wake up one morning in love all over again. It’s a beautiful book. I hope you’ll come. If you’ve never been to Iceland, that most beautiful and quirkiest of countries, this is your chance!
7:30 p.m., Thursday November 19
Martin Batchelor Gallery
712 Cormorant Street, Victoria, B.C.
There’s a special treat. D.C. Reid will expand the sufic theme by launching a new book of glosas: The Spirit of the Thing and the Thing Itself. Dennis and I have gone on the road with books many times before. It’s always a lot of fun and a thrill to be reading with him again.
