Michael Kimball and Joseph Young talk about words. Thirty of them. These words from Young’s Easter Rabbit:
As she read essays, she plaited one side of her hair. You’d last forever, he said, up from his puzzle. The green light of some vehicle tracked across the ceiling.
I love the kind of obsessive attention to words found in this interview. I’m also interested in consecution and recursion, and the acoustical properties/relations of sentences in general. Does anyone know of any essays/books besides Gary Lutz’s incomparable “The Sentence Is a Lonely Place” that treat this subject in an in-depth way?
