Three recent book reviews have surfaced. Behold:
All three are great reads, if you’re looking for something to read. If you’re not, they’re still great reads.
(Update 5/20: I also had the pleasure to chat with Courtney Maum about her new novel, Touch, for The Millions. This was our second published conversation. I first got to know Courtney when I interviewed her in 2014 for Publishers Weekly.)
Two pieces of information:
First, Kenyon Review Online published my review of Diane Williams’ great story collection, Fine, Fine, Fine, Fine, Fine, which you can read here.
Second, COG published my short story, “What Did the Boy Do When He Came Back to Life?” in their newest issue. In it, I namecheck The Goonies, WWF Wrestling, Koko B. Ware, and more. A big thanks to editor Soma Mei Sheng Frazier for including me. You can read the whole issue here, or jump straight to my story here.
I have a couple of new book reviews out in the world. For Cleaver, I wrote about Donald Quist’s essay collection, Harbors, and at Electric Literature, I have a piece on Melanie Finn’s new novel, The Gloaming.
A few new items have popped up recently.
One is a tiny essay I wrote called “Exoneration,” which appears in the latest issue of 5×5. It’s only one sentence long, but that sentence is far from short.
Also out are a couple of book reviews. At NC, I got to talk about Masande Ntshanga’s amazing novel, The Reactive. And I was so happy to review Abby Frucht and Laurie Alberts’ new, crazy tale, A Well-Made Bed, for The Northwest Review of Books.
