r.i.p. david markson (1927-2010)
i wrote an essay about, and inspired by, david markson for the faster times indie books.
At one point, Markson makes mention of Wittgenstein's Mistress being rejected "54 times," before finally being accepted by a notable, but small independent press.
At another point, the phrase "stud lover boy" is recalled, as a reference to Markson.
