What's new this month from James Matthew Wilson? I'd like to know myself. After a month of running the Houston residency for the MFA program, circling Lake Michigan with family and friends, a trip to Louisville to give three lectures and receive the Memoria Press Parnassus Prize, and then doing a public interview with Dana Gioia at the Napa Institute, there has not been a whole lot of time for writing.
I have some new work forthcoming in books and magazines, including a good number of poems, and I expect to have two new books out in the coming year, but for the moment I have two prose pieces to share, both of which speak, I think, to an important theme in the intellectual and Christian life: honesty. Or, what W.H. Auden called being "silly." Have a look.
