SELF PORTRAIT OF DORA MAAR
TINY MOLECULES has a very clean, readable look. No picture on the page with your essay. But there are pictures for each story/essay on their contents page that also pop up when you post the essay and I just noticed that the photo they chose for "Still Lives" is actually a self-portrait by Dora Maar, who was a well-known photographer before she was Picasso's mistress and model and a painter. A very cool choice.
They posted "Still Lives" in the middle of the night last night, when I happened to be up (alas) so I reposted it. Woke up this morning to an explosion of interest that I didn't expect at all. The lyric essay on Calvino has gone pretty much unnoticed, but all sorts of people are reading this one. Jill Talbot wrote me an email asking questions for teaching it in the future.
