Books recently read… (and found AWESOME):
(…and found mediocre:)
Amy Hempel, Tumble Home: A Novella and Short Stories (I haven’t read the eponymous novelette, but the short stories did not live up to her hype. Kelly Link kicks this book’s ass. I’ll have to read other Hempel work to figure out why people worship her, including Chuck Palahnuik)
Links to two amazing Kelly Link stories, because I love you that much. On the second one, you have to click the real small “next” at the bottom – or better yet, buy the issue of Tin House it’s in. Hey, subscribe to Tin House – or get me a subscription!
I have nothing to do with them, just trying to get some good lit karma.
