Poet's and Writer's July/Aug 08 Cover
When I got my copy of Poet's and Writer's in the mail, I couldn't believe who was on the cover...Marilyn Monroe reading Ulysses. My first thought was how uncharacteristic of P&W. But it's such a cool photo. Some have called it ironic, or out of reach: the blonde bombshell reading one of the most celebrated, yet fully difficult novels of our time. But the photo goes beyond the image the media created her to be. And I love it.
