Steak and Poetry


As one of the comments observes, "This is a lovely article about nothing, really," but Emily Witt's "Steak and Poetry from the Rooftops" in The Paris Review captures well the distractedness of a poetry reading, as the poets are assailed on all sides by the smells and sounds of the city.
I think Lisa Jarnot comes off best here. And her daughter.
