Several new reviews have come out over the past few months. Over at Numéro Cinq, I reviewed The Happy Marriage by Tahar Ben Jelloun back in February, and this month I reviewed White Sands: Experiences from the Outside World by Geoff Dyer. Also, I wrote about Samantha Hunt’s Mr Splitfoot for Review 31 in March.
My review of Joy Williams’ The Visiting Privilege came out over at Numéro Cinq. Also, I reviewed two books last month for Numéro Cinq, which I forgot to post. Those two were J. M. Coetzee and the Life of Writing: Face-to-Face with Time by David Attwell and The Good Story by JM Coetzee and Arabella Kurtz.
Several items of publication news: My review of Edouard Levé’s Newspaper is up over at Numéro Cinq. (I reviewed, and loved, the same author’s Autoportrait a few years back.) Numéro Cinq also published my review of Rikki Durcornet’s Deep Zoo in January. Additionally, two of my short stories are set for reprint in the next few months: “Caulifloret” in Booth 8 and “The Funeral Bill” in a new anthology coming out of New Orleans (title TBA).
