Walrus Babies

This week in The Walrus, Pasha reviews the babies he encountered this past year.

(by Sue and Ashok)

In 2009, Anna turned twenty-six, but she is my baby sister, so therefore a baby. And as a baby, she is a total failure. Nobody likes a baby who does adult things, such as organize protests or perform feminist theatre. These are not activities for a baby. Playing with a rattle, pooping, gazing with pure, innocent wonder out into the world — this is what we want from babies. Storming Parliament Hill and doing The Vagina Monologues, not so much.

Love Is a Four Letter Word

Electric Literature #2

Pasha has a story in the Fall 2009 issue of Electric Literature.

Lydia Davis and Colson Whitehead are also in this issue, so I’d say things are looking up for old Pasha.

Electric Lit is available in printed, ebook, Kindle or iPod editions, which is fun.
