Self-referential Annoying Blogger

Tuesday, 21st September, 2010

“Hi Lindsay, I’m going for beers with a few workshop people post-workshop on wednesday night if you like; alternatively, we could meet up another time.

My eyes aren’t so goggly anymore; * does that mean I’m settling in? Did you get a chance to look at my blog, https://newyorkperistalsis.wordpress.com? Isn’t it annoying when people say that?

Buenas Noches, David.’

* More about this phenomenon another time

New York Peristalsis

My name is David McLoghlin, I am the author of "Waiting for Saint Brendan and Other Poems" (Salmon Poetry, July 2012); I am an Irish poet, writer and literary translator, who currently lives in New York, and blogs about its vicissitudes, while not writing other things, like my 2nd collection. I moved to NYC in 2010 to study at NYU's MFA Program in Creative Writing, from which I graduated in 2012, two months before my book was published. Before moving to the US, I lived in Ireland, Spain, Belgium, France, the USA, and travelled in a variety of countries (including Morocco, Czechoslovakia (when it was that country), Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina and Norway), whilst engaged in a number of pursuits. Newyorkperistalsis.wordpress.com came about as a catch-all for impressions related to moving to NYC alone: culture shock, in essence, and all her ugly sisters.
