My mom called tonight. She told me an odd piece of mail had arrived for me at their house, an address I haven’t called home in well over five years.

Apparently, the Oxford University Press decided to send me an advance review copy of Irish Writing – An Anthology of Irish Literature in English 1789-1939, which comes out next month. Awfully nice, right?

The thing is, they addressed it to me care of Stanza, an online poetry magazine I haven’t published since 1992. And, really, they had to dig to find that magazine and address.

So, anyway, I’ll give you a report when I’ve had a chance to leaf through all 600+ pages. It’s the least I can do, right?
