Hi Fritz, Glad to have this contribution to volume 55! :) What immediately came to my mind when I listened to your recording was an op-ed in the NYTimes I had read yesterday with the throw-a-way title "Does Having a Day Job Mean Making Better Art?" https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/22/t-magazine/art/artist-day-job.html . The article reminded me of the many writers who had been printers in their day.

Interesting! But still not 100% accurate. At least, not when seen on a global scale:
wikipedia wrote:The world's first movable type printing press technology for printing paper books was made of porcelain materials and was invented around AD 1040 in China during the Northern Song Dynasty by the inventor Bi Sheng (990–1051).[1] Subsequently in 1377, the world's oldest extant movable metal print book, Jikji, was printed in Korea during the Goryeo dynasty.

Cheers,
Ava.

Hi BT! Thanks very much for these selections! :) It's great to see Vol. 55 filled up. :clap: Your contributions are always interesting. Back in 2010, I read Lola Ridge's powerful poem, The Ghetto, for a Women's Literature Collection: https://librivox.org/american-womens-literature-1847-to-1922-by-various/. It was my first encounter with her as a writer. I'm glad to see another selection by Lola Ridge here in the nonfiction collection

Thanks Vfkabt :D

Kreymborg's Marionettes had one error.

8:02 first one follows pleasantly the miming –
You read missing and then later reread the sentence

Waterfront Fancies is PLOK. :thumbs:
