Holy mother of literary mashups, these are some awesome handmade Prufrock-themed shoes. To be worn while listening to T.S. Eliot’s exquisite reading of “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.”

To be worn while walking at dusk through narrow streets and watching the smoke that rises from the pipes of lonely men in shirt-sleeves, leaning out of windows… High-res

Episode 15: Julia Pierpont & Gabriel Roth

catapultreads:

On this episode, we’ve got stories of children trying to make sense of the world… and adults trying to do the same. Figuring out the unspoken rules, trying to get the answers they want, a little lost, a little hopeful, a little strange. Julia Pierpont reads her short story, “Times For Us Alone,” and Gabriel Roth reads from his novel, The Unknowns (which is fantastic and which you should read).
