David Schneider has a new book out - Goods: Short Stories
- Amazon link

Goods page

Linked, fictional, short stories, set in Zen centers and Tibetan vajrayana meditation communities. What happens when Westerners—young, earnest, often amorous women and men—set out on the Buddhist spiritual path? What happens when scores of them end up living together in the same building or neighborhood for meditation? In these uncensored tales of the practice world, such seekers often have to make it up as they go, integrating classical wisdom with modern reality. This includes their own playful or unruly energies. Guided by (mostly) Asian teachers, they do what they can to faithfully live the tradition, learn about themselves, and about one another. What results is a comedy of manners.

Goods is a Cuke Press-DE book - DE stands for Germany

Thanks for the books! THE is great -- have you seen Rory MacBeth's Alphabetical Bible? or the minimal poems of Aram Saroyan? Two of my favorites which this reminds me of. I dig the austerity of the book as well, from the cover to the type. Oh, also check out Craig Dworkin's PARSE. Blow your mind. And Color Dreams, so different, is simply beautiful, a perfect melding of text & image (hard to do well). And Kelly's anthology is simply, well, how can you go wrong a group of poets like that? Thank you so much for reaching out to me. These are superb projects that I'm so happy to live with! - Kenneth Goldsmith - (wikipedia page for Kenneth Goldmith)
