Samaku.

My life story is the story of everyone I've ever met. Daughter. Writer. Jicarilla Apache and Laguna Pueblo. Band mama for Playboy Manbaby and Rubber Brother Records. Southwest born; raised in the land of lake and loon. Purveyor of songs with key changes, synchronized dancing, and smiles aplenty. On the road searching for a dream I had once.

Today’s top book news item:
Gabriel García Márquez left behind an unpublished manuscript when he died last week at age 87, Cristobal Pera, editorial director of Penguin Random House Mexico, told The Associated Press. Pera added that Marquez’s family has not yet decided whether to publish it.
Meanwhile, the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia published an extract of the work, tentatively titled We’ll See Each Other in August (En agosto nos vemos). In the excerpt, a middle-aged woman named Ana Magdalena Bach has a fling during her annual trip to a tropical island to put flowers on her mother’s grave. She stays at a hotel overlooking a lagoon full of herons. Ana, though she’s married, meets a man at the hotel and begins an affair with him. The excerpt has a strong sense of place — García Márquez’s descriptions are lush with flowers and tropical life – and a ripple of eroticism travels through it, from the touch of perfume Ana puts behind her ear at the beginning of the chapter to the thunderstorm during her encounter with the man from the hotel.

Tipis on the National Mall in DC tonight for “Reject and Protect.” Wow. What a picture. I’m sure the ancestors are there too- helping, keeping watch.
