Weird life cover

A Weird Unfathomable Ordinary Everyday Life, to be published in the fall of 2009, is a collaboration between Bill Bridges and mail- and rubber-stamp artist Dianne Jenkins. It will include nearly 100 examples of her art and excerpts from three years of their correspondence.

Excerpt:

[Dianne, traveling in Dubai] “The card shows the Gold Souk. We haven’t actually bought much but walking in the souks is wonderful, especially the spice stalls, with all the smells and unusual whole spices that I have never seen before.”

[Bill, amazed in Indiana] “THAT’S A SOUK? I always thought a souk was a dim and dusty (and, yes, smelly) place with merchants sitting cross-legged and haggling. And sinister characters in the shadows, with knives. Obviously I read too many adventure yarns as a kid. BUT THIS LOOKS LIKE A MALL!”
