VCU Cabell First Novelist Award Winner Announced

Delighted for Justin Torres whose jewel of a novel We The Animals won the Cabell First Novelist Award.  Congratulations to him and to all the others who were in the running and gratitude to VCU for maintaining such an award.

It would be disingenuous of me to say that I am not a tiny bit disapplointed but then I remind myself that there is a larger reason we all insist on making things.  This is something that I have always found a beguilingly profound meditation of the whole creative impulse:

Look I made a hat where there never was a hat

As the man from Foxrock said: “I can’t go on.  I’ll go on.”
