I had to take a break from reading RDR. I chose to read it intermittently along with two of West's other works, "Flirting"(2007) and "Bare"(2005). Taken together, West's body of work feeds a growing place in me where specious boundaries go to die and shared experience and bare-hearted loving matter more than othered identities created to maintain difference. Superficially West and I have less than nothing in common, but our connection through this book proves that superficialities matter less than an open ability to write and read. Read this book to get to that place in him, and in yourself. The words do not fail to take you there.
Red Dirt Revival is "a poetic memoir in 6 breaths". I jumped into the cycle halfway through, landing in Breath 3: Queer Rhytes. I inhaled "A Letter to Helene Cixous", West's epistle to the post-modern Algerian philosopher. His personalized estimation of her work and his ability to identify their commonalities gave me hope for my own eccentric search for meaning...and so, hooked, I couldn't put the book down. I purposefully exhaled and moved further through the volume chapter and verse to breathe in one miraculous piece at a time..."On Loving"... "asskisser"... "Dear Book"... "niggapoem" and "body talk" among my favorites.Read more ›
