Asked to write about a beloved work of art is excruciating, like a red-hot iron sizzling on the small of a young woman's back one late August night in a pop-up branding-and-crucifixion rave I attended a decade ago in New Orleans.
Andrei Codrescu would like you to read his new poetry book, The Art of Forgetting, and his recent book Whatever Gets You Through the Night: a Story of Sheherezade and the Arabian Entertainments.
