In 1945, the American poet Ezra Pound was due to stand trial for treason for his broadcasts in Fascist Italy during the Second World War.
Before the trial could take place, however, he was pronounced insane. Escaping a possible death sentence, he was sent to St. Elizabeths Hospital near Washington, D.C., where he was held for more than a decade.
At the hospital, Pound was at his most infamous, and most contradictory. He was a genius and a traitor, a great poet and a madman. He was also an irresistible figure and, in his cell on Chestnut Ward and on the elegant hospital grounds, he was visited by the major poets and writers of his time. T. S. Eliot, Elizabeth Bishop, Robert Lowell, John Berryman, Charles Olson, and Frederick Seidel all went to sit with him. They listened to him speak and wrote of what they had seen. This was perhaps the world’s most unorthodox literary salon: convened by a fascist, held in a lunatic asylum, with chocolate brownies and mayonnaise sandwiches served for tea.
Pound continues to divide all who read and think of him. At the hospital, the doctors who studied him and the poets who learned from him each had a different understanding of this wild and most difficult man. Tracing Pound through the eyes of his visitors, Daniel Swift’s The Bughouse tells a story of politics, madness, and modern art in the twentieth century.
I’ll take it on the chin because I know I didn’t play my best. That’s something that I’ll have to deal with. That’s my own expectation and my own kind of self-assessment. My team didn’t win. I didn’t play my best. That’s not going to be the end of the story. That’s just going to be a down chapter in the book. With the way this Warriors team is constructed, common sense suggests that this recent hiccup will be just, as Curry puts it, “a down chapter. Yet, the way we see it, it’s not out of the realm of possibility. As crazy as this may sound, we could see Curry never winning an NBA championship again. Here’s a look at 10 reasons why.

This book is a sampling of my publications in several forms and genres. I hope these selections will move the reader to read my novels and story collections available through Amazon, (www.amazon.com/author/terencekuch) Barnes & Noble, etc., or on the publishers' own sales websites. In addition to novel, short story, poem, and dramatic excerpts, Pictures of the Invisible includes a number of microfictions first posted on my popular "Memorable Fancies" website, www. terencekuch.com, also at Memorable Fancies on Facebook. If there is one overriding theme in these pieces, it is strangeness, whatever the genre: the feeling that something is not quite the way we thought it was, and that the longer we live and the more we learn, the more strange our reality seems. This has always been true of both particle physics and the human mind. It is true, as well, of everything else.
