From an email by Jason Tesauro:
• A Dutch publisher has been in touch and is going to publish a translation in the Netherlands. (Brent’s response, “holy shit, that’s my favorite country.”)
• Brent’s Transient Sex muse and lover, Toni Bernbaum, left a comment at poetryfoundation.com: “So, Jason. This is her.” (It’s worth reading the rest.)
• Requests for books from around the world continue to pour in.
• They have contacted NPR, This American Life and the Moth.
Am trying to get this volume! Excited!

Some quotes through Jason Tesauro http://www.poetryfoundation.org/article/249708#article
—“Sex With J.C. Knight”
“But when I got there he said, I just play
the piano and eat MDMA four times a day.
But I’ve been tapping into Indian spirits
who knew the earth before she hurt.”
—“Sex With Genevieve Bujold”
It was a dimestore revelation:
Tell her you’re a poet,
not a housepainter
— from another poem
“She was off to be a star again.
I was off to paint the Wagner’s house
Monterey gray with dark blue trim.”
