You won’t find this person in a link. I was lended In the Time of the Blue Ball and Writers. They were great. The best I can do here is the article Army of Avatars.
I just would like to mention here that—if you are in the United States—you can often find a page on your local public library site to request books you want to read. Search around for “interlibrary loan” and the name of your local library system.
Michael Silverblatt’s talk show with novelists and poets. I respect the quality of his questions and I envy the quantity of novels he’s read.
This is such a fun, forgotten genre—I think of it as the spiritual ancestor to fanfic. Stacey Levine’s Frances Johnson was inspired by the literary style of these.
Reviews of Marie NDiaye novels, Robert Walser, César Aira. I haven’t read Alice Munro, but I really admire the detailed reviews here of her short story collections. Maybe I’m wrong, but I also sense that this blog doesn’t destroy books with criticism—it always feels constructive. I’m generally against reviews unless the critic is very careful.
If you’re into Marie NDaiye, I like this interview with translator Jordan Stump and I like this group discussion about her work—the format and the length are generous. Wish I had interviews with NDiaye to link to. (See also: Dr Tony Shaw, thoughts on NDiaye and many other French writers.)
