Three recent book reviews have surfaced. Behold: I rambled on about Elise Levine’s Blue Field at Numéro Cinq I waxed poetic about D. Foy’s Patricide at Rain Taxi I (fill in the blank) about Robert Walser’s Girlfriends, Ghosts, and Other Stories at Electric Literature All three are great reads, if you’re looking for something to read. If you’re not, they’re still great reads. […]Read More Updates! (Updated!)
I was fortunate to talk about two great novels recently. At Numéro Cinq, I reviewed Horacio Castellanos Moya’s Revulsion: Thomas Bernhard in San Salvador, and Kenyon Review Online features my piece on Rachel B.
