More of Madness, Rack, and Honey

KCRW's Michael Silverblatt interviews Mary Ruefle about her new book of essays, Madness, Rack, and Honey (new from Wave Books), on the radio program Bookworm.

Ruefle says such things as "Every poem moves forward by getting lost and then finding itself, and then getting lost and then finding itself." And "I never have anything to say when I begin a poem. When I begin a poem I have nothing to say and I think the poem is my way of saying, 'I have nothing to say. Give me a moment and I'll talk forever.' (laughter) That's my experience of writing."
