Anakana Schofield – Award Winning Author of Bina, Martin John and Malarky

I continue to be impressed by Francis Boldereff’s correspondence to Charles Olson in the collection A Modern Correspondence. Olsen has yet to make any impression, partly because he has so few letters in it so far and what he has are the succinct variety.

I am reading the book aloud to my partner, who patiently listens and we confer on Francis. Neither of either of us is particularly interested in Olson. It’s more a case of who is this woman?

Frances, I understand, was a typesetter and children’s librarian.

The book was edited by Ralph Maud and Sharon Thesen. It came into my possession the best way, found it discarded on the side of the road. Tripping over it literature. Or it rose up to greet me lit.
