shawna lemay's site, capacious hold-all, is running a feature where women writers talk about their purses. as shawna puts it, "there has been a fascination with artist’s and writer’s workspaces." her challenge: "the purse has been seen as an honest time capsule, an archive, a little house, a portable boudoir. what do you take away with you in your hold-all? is it flimsy, sturdy, practical, frivolous? what secrets does it contain?" take a peek!
(yes, maybe i wrote something on hothead paisan and the birkin.)
