Hazel Smith's The Erotics of Geography: poetry, performance texts, new media. Amazing design that is usual now for Tinfish books. Super meta. Interesting piece on "The Body and the City." And piece on gossip that is great on talk about how gossip functions: "In some cultures gossip is closely/linked with song. Andalusian/carnival songs, written by men,/tell of local concerns and secrets./The Tuareg, in Nigeria, voice their/personal conflicts through song/rituals and gossip." p. 75-76 Made me laugh that the examples of gossip in the piece are so mundane and generic.
