Two years ago, George published Ann's poems. It was a birthday present. The book was reviewed in Sumac, a literary magazine which had assumed the subscription list of a former publication, Diesel, a jounal of lesbian apologetics.

The joke, of course, is that Sumac was a real literary magazine edited by McGuane's friend and fellow MSU alum Jim Harrison (and Dan Gerber) between 1968 and 1971. (It seems to me that I've written about Harrison lately.) I don't know if the part about picking up Diesel's subscription list is true or not, but it's a hoot either way.
