What a fantastic start to the week! Thanks so much to the wonderful @sielju for hosting this giveaway -- I have been coveting this Joan Didion tote for a long time. 😊

Started the day with a fantastic keynote speech by #roxanegay and ended the day by snagging one of these coveted #lithub totes, so I think it went pretty well. #wi12 #winterinstitute #booksellerlife

Improvement was the #3 best-reviewed book of the week on LitHub! I’m thinking: this book, cozy fire, holiday break 👍

So happy for Morgan who received the Center for Fiction’s Maxwell Perkins award last night. PJ O’Rourke bring down the house down. Jayne Anne Phillips and Lisa Howorth behind him. Also Hugs to PJ and Francisco Goldman who regaled us with stories of the old days but celebrated Morgan’s commitment to Grove’s writers and to the letters. Bug night for the art and love team.#burstingwithpride #literary #literaryhub #lithub #lithubby #centerforfiction #publishing #lifetimeachievement

URSULA K. LE GUIN: WHO CARES ABOUT THE GREAT AMERICAN NOVEL?
A question from the New York Times’ Bookends, “Where is the great American novel by a woman?,” got an interesting answer from the Pakistani novelist Mohsin Hamid.
. . . Bear with me as I advocate the death of the Great American Novel.
The problem is in the phrase itself. “Great” and “Novel” are fine enough. But “the” is needlessly exclusionary, and “American” is unfortunately parochial. The whole, capitalized, seems to speak to a deep and abiding insecurity, perhaps a colonial legacy. How odd it would be to call Homer’s “Iliad” or Rumi’s “Masnavi” “the Great Eastern Mediterranean Poem.” #lithub #newyorktimes #literature #culture #books #women #writers

I wrote about Wordstock for LitHub. Link in bio. "Usually, I am not afraid of missing out in the slightest, but Wordstock instills FOMO in me. I generally prefer to stay home, make like a hermit, and read a book. But Friday night on the eve of Wordstock, I was mingling—or, at least, attempting to mingle." #Wordstock #lithub #portlandlitcrawl

So many thanks to multi genre writer & translator Idra Novey for taking the time to interview me about The Passion of Woo & Isolde for @literaryhub. Even though the collection is fiction, it wouldn't have been possible without my stranger-than-fiction parents, shown here on their 1968 wedding day.🍒 link in bio

I was smiling on the train reading the excerpt from Mean by Myriam Gurba (found on Lithub), and then I looked up to find men smiling at me. If they only knew 😈.

This book is available from Coffee House Press. Here’s their description of this nonfiction novel:
Gurba grows up queer, Chicana, and takes no prisoners. Her story is a revelation, a delight, and an eye-opener.
True crime, memoir, and ghost story, Mean is the bold and hilarious tale of Myriam Gurba’s coming of age as a queer, mixed-race Chicana. Blending radical formal fluidity and caustic humor, Gurba takes on sexual violence, small towns, and race, turning what might be tragic into piercing, revealing comedy. This is a confident, intoxicating, brassy book that takes the cost of sexual assault, racism, misogyny, and homophobia deadly seriously.

Adding this to my never-ending list of things to read, but I’m probably moving this up for all the obvious reasons 🖤 It’s been a tough week under the patriarchy, reading this warms my heart. ⚡️STAY MEAN, GIRLS/QUEERS/NON-MEN.

What a privilege it was to hear Zadie Smith discuss her writing process at The Mercantile Library’s Niehoff XXX Lecture last night, seen here in conversation with James A. Schiff. Some of the things Smith talked about included how reading leads to writing, how one can learn from the work of a favored author, and how contrary to popular belief, she feels the technical aspects overrides creativity, which Smith deems to be a small part of the hard work involved in writing a novel. She teaches fiction at Columbia University School of Arts.

Executive Director of the Mercantile, John Faherty, welcomed attendees to this annual fundraiser. The Mercantile Library is a treasure; Cincinnati’s best known secret. Since its inception in 1835, the Mercantile has done much to further reading in Cincy and its environs. If you are not a member, it would be worth your while to enquire about the many rich programs it has to offer. Once inside, one feels far from the maddening crowd: a place of refuge to read, write, and think.

Alex Gilvarry: “Novels take a hell of a long time to write, and in between books many of us feel forgotten. And when we are forgotten, it is quite natural to covet thy neighbor’s career.”

Thinking a lot about these words by Adrienne Rich recently. #lithub #adriennerich

There was a book sale at the university today, and I got to fill up my @literaryhub bag! October has been the month of books for me! (I still haven't posted my Sunday library sale haul).
I was ecstatic to find The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell, I now own all of his books! I also went crazy with the Oxford World's Classics! All my books were $2 each! I rarely go to campus anymore, and I'm glad the book sale got me there before winter - the university is so pretty this time of the year.

Really enjoyed this quick read earlier by Eleanor Stanford. Kate Tempest, all day. “We all have these huge, extensive interior existences which are beautiful and multilayered,” she told the National Post last year. “I wish there was a more direct way of letting people into that world. I suppose that’s what poetry and music and literature are for.” 💜💜💜 I love the way that Tempest weaves mythology into her writing. The Gods walk amongst the smudged eyeliner and the overflowing ashtrays of South London and it never feels heavy-handed or wedged in. Reminds me of a story I wrote once about a Sibyl hiding out working as a barmaid in a smelly old boozer. It wasn’t very good.

Carmen Maria Machado, HER BODY AND OTHER PARTIES. Incredible! This passage is an elegiac prayer to queer women, imo. This litany of words that describe a lesbian couple's altar is itself an altar. It evoked memories of Judy Chicago's THE DINNER PARTY at #BrooklynMuseum, the #Sackler Feminist Center. Imagine this passage at its entrance!
📚
Carmen Maria Machado loves to make lists, 🖋according to #LitHub interview. To me, her inventories flow like reverant incantations; they've been the most pleasurable discovery about her writing style in my #firstread. 📚💗📚💗

Day 299: "Harvey Weinstein is Hillary Clinton’s fault, we have learned from many sources. So is eczema and the Civil War and the fact that your child refuses to learn to tie shoelaces and sticks to Velcro shoes. The hairs and stuff that get caught in the Velcro are also Hillary Clinton’s fault, and she could have passed legislation against them if she cared instead of being uncaring. It is also the soon-to-be-divorced Mrs. Weinstein’s fault that her husband is an alleged rapist, except that it is Hillary Clinton’s fault, except that it is the fault of the victims for choosing to be small, young female victims looking for work at the outset of their cinematic careers instead of being Matt Damon, a choice open to us all. Why are you not Matt Damon yourself? This is your fault." - Rebecca Solnit, LitHub ( http://lithub.com/things-that-are-hillary-clintons-fault-starting-with-harvey-weinstein/ ) #imwithher #stillwithher #strongertogether #lovetrumpshate #onwardtogether #lithub #1500daysforher

“A dog’s silent company provides relief—particularly for a writer, who, ever toiling with words, knows their limits.” http://lithub.com/the-divinity-of-dog-writing/ #dogwriting #lithub #sweetcompany #shibapuppy

“I began designing halfway through my reading. I pulled a few photographs and images that were evocative in the right ways. I started to tinker, creating a mass of graphic ‘strips,’ curious to see what would happen if the positive shapes housed the images. It was visually striking in the way that I had hoped, especially with one photo of a young woman who looked (in my mind) to resemble the main character. The gaps in space were meaningful in the composition, just as the absence of words in McBride’s sentences were. I tried a few other designs out as well—a blurred photograph with staggered type, a mask with a floral imprint, and an old statue of a Greek actor—but the original conceit won out. I felt affirmed as my hybrid self, though I never did end up finishing the manuscript.” ⠀

[✍🏽💌 LINK IN BIO] We're live at #lithub: "What are we to make of Maud Martha’s deliberate refusal to become an artist? It’s true that Gwendolyn Brooks pursued a different path. But I want to hold onto the sense in which she 'is still alive' as Maud Martha. Every artist has a phantasmatic intimacy with her own silence. And those of us who cannot regard a career in the arts as an entitlement know very well that it might have been otherwise. I don’t want to suggest that Brooks is a dime a dozen on the South Side of Chicago or anywhere else. But through Maud Martha, she poses an ethical question: does Maud Martha need to produce art in order for us to appreciate her artistry?"

An Uncomplicated Life: Raising a Child With Down's Syndrome - If you, or someone you know, has a child with DS or any other disability, you will find joy and solace in this memoir by Cincinnati sports columnist and feature writer Paul Daugherty. But whether you do or not, it is a moving, revelatory, and inspiring read.
2. Slide left - Dougherty is well known in Cincinnati, but he has also won accolades elsewhere.
3. Forget the adage 'You are what you eat" - in this video Dougherty says "You are who you root for!" He was speaking Thursday night as part of KCCs Speakers Series, which I chair. The ballroom was packed as Dougherty regaled us with tales of all things sports as well as being a parent to Jillian who got married recently. "She's a communal triumph, a laying of many hands."

From @literaryhub comes a helpful guide to carry us into what they call “the season of the Big Fall Novel.”

LitHub writer Emily Temple has created “a reading list of reading lists” for books coming out in the last four months of this year. She tabulated the recommendations from 17 different fall literary preview lists from a variety of websites and publications and tells us which books are being most frequently recommended. She provides a link to each of the 17 sources … can you resist clicking on and reading every single list? I couldn’t. 😳

To me, a statistically created book recommendation list is as good as a literary prize nomination list. I wonder how many of these books will appear on the upcoming award longlists? I wonder how many of these books will make it onto my TBR list?

If you have read STAY WITH ME by AYOBAMI ADEBAYO, then this article will resonate certain emotions within you. We think it is very important that society's attitude towards infertility; especially towards the women be changed.
In the peculiar hierarchy of African households the only rung
lower than motherless child is childless mother.

Rejection - Love this cartoon in The New Yorker by Edward Steed.
Years ago, I submitted a short story to a prestigious magazine. The fiction editor responded to me via letter, not a slip, with the bad news that "nothing happens," and the good news that "anything you write would be of interest." I was ecstatic. I waved it in front of my husband like it was a gold medal who, when he read it said "Rejection is rejection." That's true. What he didn't understand is that rejection is part of a writer's life, that there are different kinds of rejection, and writers could paper their walls with such ephemera.

National Book Lovers Day - Thank goodness for E-books as otherwise I'd have to move! My nightstand, for instance, is laden with books and needs serious pruning. Whether old or new some of these books I have read, and some I have yet to read. Some, like the Best American series - short stories, essays etc. stick around, because I read a couple, but then get distracted by something else; however, I am a finisher and gosh darn it I will finish them! Even when I read the slush pile years ago for a London magazine, I would read the whole story, not just the first paragraph, because I was ever hopeful there'd be some discovery, some saving grace that would make the author's sweat and tears worthwhile. On the other hand, some essays I love from collections by David Foster Wallace and Elinor Lipman I will reread from time to time so they remain on my nightstand. But I know, I've got to make room for more so I better get back to reading. Hope you are enjoying the books on your nightstand. Night!
