Red Meat

How did we miss this?!? Perennial oona muse Anne Carson is releasing a sequel to Autobiography of Red, her 1999 verse novel about a little monster with red wings. (It's called Red Doc >.) Here's a bit from the blurb:

Anne Carson brings the red-winged Geryon from Autobiography of Red, now called "G," into manhood, and through the complex labyrinths of the modern age. We join him as he travels with his friend and lover "Sad" (short for Sad But Great), a war veteran; and with Ida, an artist, across a geography that ranges from plains of glacial ice to idyllic green pastures; from a psychiatric clinic to the somber house where G's mother must face her death.

Suddenly, the wait 'til 2013 seems very long...
