Even Though I Don't Miss You - Chelsea Martin

nicoleguappone:


"Drinking wine is the closest thing to not drinking that I can manage right now." -From Even Though I Don’t Miss You

It was published a little while back (November 2013), but I just recently discovered HOBART. This is my first experience with Chelsea Martin. Say don’t judge a book by its cover all you want, but this one is amazing. I didn’t even realize this girl had four arms until I really stared. I mean, who could look away from the Dairy Queen swirl of vanilla ice cream on her head in the first place?

I don’t know if this is real-life Chelsea Martin in this poem/prose/beautiful whatever. I think I read that she wrote this while going through a break-up of her own, but I could just be making this up. Either way, her brief but eloquent examination of a relationship coming together and then fading into nothing is beautifully real, whether you’ve experienced this or not.

Martin discusses those moments when you fall in love with your lover all over again while they’re doing something mundane like sewing a button on their shirt. (Or sitting on a swing next to you talking about the stars. That one I remember vividly.) She is not preoccupied with the idea of evolution, but referring to it more than once in such a short piece kind of forces the reader to notice it. She examines its role basically in making memories and having feelings. How strange is it that we’ve evolved to do something like drink a glass of water to keep ourselves from crying? Or maybe that’s just her?

All Mary Miller had to say in a blurb was “This book is giving me feelings.” You can’t really put it any better than that. Martin wrote it as though she was just sitting at her computer typing out a journal entry. It is sometimes sort of stream of consciousness, and I was forced to slow down so I could figure out just what Martin was trying to say. And when I did, I sighed a little because what else is there to do?

This book makes me hold on even tighter to my current relationship. While I was reading this, I imagined it having ended. And it’s almost as though those feelings, those feelings Martin was giving me, were familiar. Can feelings that you’ve never really had feel familiar? I can’t wait to read Martin’s back catalog. I hope she’ll have me sighing and giggling during those as well.

Bill Murray, wrapped in that tuxedo, holding that ersatz glass of whiskey, gives me something I’ve always been looking for: an image of masculinity that I can relate to. 
(via Hobart :: Great Moments In Cinematic Drinking: Lost In Translation)

All this month, we’re featuring Hobart 15 Bonus Materials on the website, to kinda celebrate Ho15’s release. Its our “Hotel Culture” issue, so we told Matt that if he did a hotel-related installment of his ongoing “Great Moments in Cinematic Drinking” column, it’d be perfect! This is maybe his best one yet!

Here she is - finally, a Hobart mixer of our very own! You have no idea how happy this made Jon. After almost a year of hand kneading dough every day for all of the sandwiches and caterings we work, he can finally just press a button and have it done for him. Looks like he will have to start hitting the gym to get those pipes lol. Thanks to our friend Krys, the owner of Cafe Domestique, for allowing us to use and pay off in instalments. So just know when you are supporting our pop up nights at the Cafe, you are helping save Jon’s arms and shoulders one batch of dough at a time. That’s about an hour and a half of kneading dough each week!

Big World

Big World by Mary Miller
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I could say that Mary Miller’s Big World is a wonderful collection, which it is, and that the stories in it remind me of how I feel when reading stories by Charles Baxter (or Bobbie Ann Mason), and they are all excellent because Baxter (and Mason) seems to only write excellent stories. I could say that if I taught a writing class, which is a wildly hilarious idea (the thought of me teaching anything!), I would add stories from Big World into the curriculum because they encompass everything one should want a short story to have, which is to say they are truthful, funny and sad, and many other things also. I could say a lot about this book, really, but I won’t. What I will say is that I recommend Big World to people who like reading strong writing about flawed (yet remarkably interesting) characters, and I recommend it highly because that’s how this book rolls.
