Two Essays

By Joni Tevis:

"Bigfoot's Widow: An Essay"
from Barrelhouse


"Chihuahua Desert Love Song" from AGNI

I'd never heard of Ms. Tevis before reading the Bigfoot essay, which blew me away. What a turn that thing takes toward the end. After googling her--and reading the essay over at AGNI--I found out she has a website, where more essays are available. Plus, she's going to have a whole book of them coming out soon. Based on the five total essays I've read by her so far, I"m definitely going to be picking up a copy.

So: Go and read the above essays and then check out her website for a few more. Really. It won't take much time, and you'll be glad you're not reading silly ol' blog entries.
