From Seattle, land of crab and snow. Took an early flight from San Francisco, fell asleep instantly, woke up as we touched down in Seattle and I was totally confused... snow? Had we been redirected to Denver?
Do we like our Seattle with snow? I miss the rain! The slickers! The sodden and downtrodden.
What is the best Seattle book?
I am a big fan of Richard Hugo's The Real West Marginal Way. It's a lovely autobiography that was compiled, if I recall correctly, after the poet's death though in process while he was still alive. For those of you unaware, in south Seattle there is a street named West Marginal Way, the street that the poet Richard Hugo grew up on. What is Acorn Enterprises at
7245 W Marginal Way SW?
I bet The Real West Marginal Way is out of print, but it shouldn't be.
Hugo also wrote one of the finest books on teaching writing, The Triggering Town.
And he worked at Boeing.
What do you do in Seattle? I'll go to the library. ...
