“I slept that last night, all the way through. I wasn’t sure if I could. Everyone told me I wouldn’t. But I did. I woke up about an hour earlier than normal, but I used that time to get ready by taking a shower, sitting down, and mentally preparing, until my bunkie, Mario, woke up.”
“George Herriman’s comic strip Krazy Kat ran in William Randolph Hearst’s newpapers from 1913 to 1944. It began, though, as a footnote in another of the artist’s strips, The Dingbat Family, in 1910. Running in the gutters of that strip, a tiny cat found itself pursued by an even smaller mouse who, on July 26, 1910, threw his first brick at the cat’s head.”
“Freud wrote ‘Mourning and Melancholia’ in 1917, during World War I, while living in Vienna. The essay is a fascinating lens through which to read and consider Dr. Robin Wall Kimmerer’s Braiding Sweetgrass and Georges Perec’s novel, Things.”
This is the eighth installment of Lynn Crawford’s series Imaginary Dinner Party, a work of part fiction, part essay, exploring what happens when books join forces. Read the series from the beginning.
