i saw the exhibit of her work in new york about a year or so ago. while i think you're right about some of it being uneven, her work and story is fascinating. definitely worth investigating.

i saw her back in october here on the east coast- it was one of the best shows i've seen. great review- this sounds like she's not at all tired of the road. she has such incredible stage presence. she and her band are electric.

i was lucky enough to hear him read as a guest in my class as an undergrad. he's a humble, kind, very funny man who is truly talented. i'm so happy he was chosen for this honor.
