Anyone fans of Lydia Millet? She’s got 2 books out this year from Soft Skull Press, a great independent press: Everyone’s Pretty and Oh Pure and Radiant Heart. Both look extremely good and have made it to my TBR list (not much of a feat I agree, but I really want to read these). Read the CS Monitor’s review of Oh Pure and Radiant Heart, which they describe as “that rarest of finds: a compassionate satire, with a terrific premise and writing that’s so assured that readers should be lining up for admission to this dystopia.” And Ron pointed out this Newsday interview with her as well. Millet will be reading with Tennessee Jones and Maggie Nelson tomorrow night at Newtonville Books, another wonderful independent bookstore in the Boston area. So go check it out.
