Mary Ruefle: Madness, Rack, and Honey
Listen to/Watch entire show:
Madness, Rack, and Honey: Collected Lectures (Wave Books) is the best book about writing, reading, and loving poetry. We discuss passion as the point of origin. Mary Ruefle is a great explorer of the truths about life that go without saying until she comes along and sets everything upside down, bringing refreshment and beauty to basic instincts and, in the process, creating mystery, surprise and, well, yes, poetry.
