What I’m Reading: Me Again

Me Again: Uncollected Writings of Stevie Smith.
One of my favorite modern writers. Humorous and serious at once, she often reminds me of Emily Dickinson. This book includes reviews, essays, poetry, correspondence, and of course her whimsical drawings. My favorite of the essays is "Some Impediments to Christian Committment," which expresses her highly moral agnosticism and includes such vigorous poems as "Was He Married?" She has at least one fansite on the web, at http://www.steviesmith.org.
