Thorton Wilder (he wondered about that poet laureate gig too) would like Magruder’s Curiosity Cabinet. And he’d love H.P. Wood. Her novel transports you to the rollicking resort at the bottom of Brooklyn.
I say, who better to be a poet laureate of Coney Island than Ms. Wood?
I hope HPW meets songwriter Amos Wengler when she does her next reading July 9, 4pm: Sideshows by the Seashore, Coney Island, NY. I think they’ll have a lot to talk about.
