Memoir. In THE DANISH NOTEBOOK, Michael Palmer sets out to connect the dots -- to discover which images and designs will appear when his reflections (on poetry, on collaboration, on work, on travel) and memories (of chance meetings, of conversations among friends, of books read and movies seen) are set down on paper.
