Sixty Morning Walks
SIXTY MORNING WALKS is a sixty-part meditation inspired by Utagawa Hiroshige's kaleidoscopically shifting vantage on the ever-changing city. The project's companion piece (SIXTY MORNING TALKS), also available at SPD and on Ugly Duckling Presse's website, revisits many of the same New York locations, yet now with its language contracted out to an error-prone online transcription service. The unmediated / mediated idiom of these two halves disrupts any easy reading of the overall project as a lyrical or conceptual text.
Andy Fitch's most recent books are SIXTY MORNING WALKS and SIXTY MORNING TALKS, both published by Ugly Duckling Presse in 2014, Pop Poetics: Reframing Joe Brainard, and his collaboration with Amaranth Borsuk, AS WE KNOW (Subito Press, 2014). His second collaboration with Jon Cotner, following TEN WALKS/TWO TALKS (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2010), CONVERSATIONS OVER STOLEN FOOD, will be published by 1913 Press in 2015. For Letter Machine Editions, he and Cristiana Baik are currently assembling THE LETTER MACHINE BOOK OF INTERVIEWS. Fitch edits The Conversant and Essay Press. He teaches in the University of Wyoming's MFA program.
