Recent rumblings: Talking with Noy Holland & a radio show

Fiction, Interview

Very excited to share a chat I had with Noy Holland earlier this summer. We talked about her new novel, Bird, as well as writing in general. You can find the interview at Numéro Cinq.

Also, I was so thrilled that Mr. Bear’s Violet Hour Saloon featured two of my stories (“Chemistry” and “Hood Ornament”) on a recent broadcast. You can hear them both below. A big thanks to Georgia Bellas for the plug!

To the Black Sea: 2 New Book Reviews

Book Review

Two new book reviews out in the world. For Kenyon Review Online, I break down David Bezmozgis’s excellent novel, The BetrayersThen, at Numéro Cinq, I talk about Jeff Parker’s nonfiction journal/travelogue, Where Bears Roam the Streets. Both books are very, very different, but they share geography, with The Betrayers set on the Crimean coastline and a large chunk of Parker’s narrative also unfolding along the warm edge of the Black Sea.
