It's Nice That Bookshelf

a coupla things


Over at the open end a dude named herocious wrote this really good anecdotal review of Everything Is Quiet. He says this:

"In My Father’s Friends I wonder if the guy who survived for many months on a life raft was the same guy Gabriel García Márquez wrote about. I also got very silent when I was reading about the woman who survived being drowned. I’ve read about her 3-5 times times, and each time I hear Daft Punk playing some shit, and I taste what it would taste like to swallow sea water. I guess that’s what happens when you’re drowning in the ocean, you keep water out for as long as you can, and then you have to breathe, you have to swallow.

And this:

"I think it’s very dangerous and highly unrecommended for addicts to read Kendra Grant Malone’s poetry. I think everyone else is safe."

Oh ok cool. I like that.

Also, I have a reading with the super fucking cool Ben Fama, who doesn't have a blog. Weird right? Well I love him anyways. Read about the event here. See you Tuesday. BTW FREE BEER.

Coldfront

Morgan Myers wrote this really lovely review of Everything Is Quiet over at Coldfront. It's short and simple and though he doesn't like me too much to begin with, at the end he comes around and I think we can all be friends.

He wrote a review for a little e-book I had last summer that I liked in the same way- go read that here.
