O yay! ‘ScOtt WaLkEr meet MuRieL RukEyseR’ is out, the next episode of Christine White’s series about her Throat of These Hours composition process. Excited by Scott Walker’s Bish Bosch Chris asks: What can I see as linkages that lead me to want to reference my discovery of Walker with my discovery of Muriel? Then explores the linkages under three headings: Form, Silence and Viscerality. Check it out here. I’m so blessed to have a composer alongside me, whose work I love and with ideas that stimulate and challenge me!

And, last week editor John Conly, DOP Jess Charlton and I worked on clips to accompany some posts that Chris and I are going to do for the Muriel Rukeyser Living Archive. Coming soon. Exciting!

Also on the way, Muriel’s never-published novel, Savage Coast, from The Feminist Press.

And, at last, I’m about to start the next draft of Throat of These Hours. Scary, but I can’t wait. A big thank you for the inspiring feedback so far, from all over the place. Alongside Chris’ work, the wonderful support from John and Jess, and generous ongoing responses from my daily writing buddy, the feedback helps me to breathe more fully and to go deeper.
