For this new edition of The Curator, I had the pleasure of writing about one of my all-time favorite movies, Sweet Land:
Letter to a Young Poet
by Daniel Nayeri
So vast was my fanboy admiration of Billy Collins when I was in college, so unencumbered by facts my ambition, and so shameless my neophytic insolence, that I wrote the Poet Laureate of United States - Billy Collins - a poem.
Don DeLillo’s Cosmopolis
by Alisa Harris
The novel is about a suicidal, mad pursuit of knowledge - about the desire for immortality through information - and the crash that follows. It is one of those prescient books that resonates more today, with our own financial titans falling, than when it was written in 2003.
the Waltz of Olaf and Inge
by Jenni Simmons
Love your spouse, work hard on your sweet land, befriend your neighbor, and spin a good tale.
If you haven't seen Sweet Land, you really should add it to your Netflix queue ASAP. I'm now proud to own this lovely film to watch again and again and again. A good love story that even my husband can stomach (and admire) is hard to come by.
