Book Review Fiction

A review and an obituary walk into a bar …

My thoughts on the novel The Double Life of Alfred Buber appear in the latest print edition of Rain Taxi Review of Books. Click here to see the table of contents. You can also buy a copy.

Second, my good friend Sarah Braud just launched a strange little website called Roadkill Obituaries. Her husband Dave takes the pictures and the two of them imagine the life stories of various dead skunks and rabbits. I contributed a piece detailing the sad end of one Charles Opossum. Read all about Charles (assuming you’ve got a strong stomach) right here.

Book Review

A distillation

My review of Tom Carson’s Daisy Buchanan’s Daughter appears in the current print issue of Rain Taxi. Plenty of folks won’t get a chance to read it, though, as they either don’t live in Rain Taxi’s distribution area or they aren’t subscribers. So I thought I’d offer up a slice of my analysis. I present to you a distillation, if you will, of my thoughts, an erasure of the printed piece. Enjoy!

“Ambitious … in … lonesome … as … of … enough … this … often … somewhat … while … robust … the … her … striving.”

(I plucked the 2nd word from every other sentence in the review to construct this.)
