New Generation

It's terrible when a sushi restaurant
burns down -- the fish had no idea it
was coming. But now it's rebuilt. There
is a faint whiff of kipper. But it's
all new inside and I order a bento box
and drink my miso. Then I see the only
thing left from the old restaurant:
a red smudged fire alarm.

Hello Michael Winter. I'm having trouble finding Creaking in Their Skins. Can you tell me where I can buy it?

Are dust bunnies included or are they extra?

Hello Michael

I recently read your beautifully made mille feuille piece in the Pen anthology. Nicely done.

But, geeze Michael, metaphor aside: I drive a seventeen-year-old Honda Civic. My heart breaks for the abandoned Jethro.

I agree ... my vote is to grab a mille feuille pastry and to keep going.

Hi Michael! I think we met a hundred years ago when I lived in St. John's and worked at Breakwater. I think maybe you were at WANL then?

Glad to find your blog and very pleased for you about the book. I learned about it through a friend who went to the Oxford, Missippii book festival some months back and had lunch with an editor at Norton who told her about it. She asked me if I'd ever heard of you.

I allowed that I had. What a very small world it is.

Best of luck, :)

Just heard your interview with Angela Antle about the incinerator incident this fall. Glad to hear you are okay. Weird though, since your last blog post was about a fire. Please write something new here. And stay away from the incinerators.

Loved The Big Why. I am an artist so I particularly loved it. I lived in Northern Maine at one time and have traveled into Canada along the coast. Great job.
