emoemoji: poems designed to read on your phone.

Belgrade fortress guards the confluence of the Sava into the Danube. A Byzantine citadel awaits a Turkish army that never arrives as it overlooks the river traffic of barges, party boats, and kids learning to sail. The rivers' banks are nearly pristine tree and reed lines, but development encroaches as the old port capitalizes on its waterfront.

Belgrade's architecture is kaleidoscopic, freely slipping Yugoslav socialist buildings among the Baroque. Sporadic war ruins bloom like delicate orchids.

On a trip to Serbia to attend the Recotrrrc / Wordrrrun performance festival, I wrote this poem from conversations, readings, and impressions. Not too much is stolen.

This book contains the poem emoemoji : belgrade i. All three of the emoemoji : belgrade poems are included in the belgrade edition.

Excellent Things in Women: A Memoir of Postcolonial Pakistan (Chicago Shorts)





Sometimes, only the most heartbreaking memories possess the capacity--in their elegiac immediacy--to take our breath away. With Excellent Things in Women, Sara Suleri offers the reader a delicately wrought memoir of life in postcolonial Pakistan. Suleri intertwines the violent history of Pakistan's independence with her own intimate experiences--relating the tumult of growing up female during a time of fierce change in the Middle East in the 1960s and '70s. In the two selections presented here, "Excellent Things in Women" and "Meatless Days," we watch as Suleri re-encounters the relationships that inform her voyage from adolescence to womanhood--with her Welsh mother; her Pakistani father, prominent political journalist Z. A. Suleri; and her tenacious grandmother, Dadi, along with her five siblings--as she comes to terms with the difficulties of growing up and her own complicated passage to the West.



The Art of Backscratching in Chicago: Driving with Ed McElroy (Chicago Shorts)

"Ed McElroy, clear of eye, sound of mind, and eighty-three years of age . . . guides his black Cadillac down Halsted Street." So begins longtime Chicago journalist Neil Steinberg's nuanced homage to Ed McElroy: an old-school, behind-the-scenes backscratcher who has driven the rich, powerful, and well-connected around the city, doing favors and calling them in, for decades. Helping a young Steinberg understand the city, McElroy and his take on how a Mayor's son gets to be Mayor and how a wily up-and-comer marries the daughter of a powerful alderman and later becomes governor would enthrall even the most seasoned Chicagoan. In this drive around town and through time, Steinberg ultimately serves up audacious and funny anecdotes about how it helps to stay connected, to know a guy, and to help people out when you can.
