Hello, hello! My first review of a graphic novel is up at Full Stop. Written by one of my new favorite contemporary writers, Deb Olin Unferth, and illustrated by Elizabeth Haidle, this was a pleasure to read and fun to review. Check the review out here, buy the novel here.
Hi there! I’m sharing the link to my review of Sahar Mustafah’s debut short story collection Code of the West, up on Full Stop’s website. The book is an eloquent and lovely rendering of the Palestinian-American experience, and I think it’s as important as it is enjoyable to read. You can read my review here. You can buy the book here.
My review of Daisy Johnson’s debut short story collection FEN is now available to read in the most recent issue of the Denver Quarterly (Vol. 1, Issue 52). You can get an individual copy of the issue as per their website’s instructions here, and you can look at the cover here. You can buy a copy of Johnson’s collection direct from their publisher, Graywolf, here. Pretty cool.
I had the pleasure and privilege of reviewing my friend and mentor Michael Shou-Yung Shum’s debut novel Queen of Spades for the online literary magazine Newfound. You can read the review here, and you can buy the book here. You’ll want to get a copy for yourself, especially if the concept of a happy ending in these ridiculously dark times is the gentle tincture you might be craving.
My short story “Alien Love” has been nominated by the Atticus Review for the 2017 Best of the Net awards. You can see their full list of nominations and read the story here!
My review of Wait Till You See Me Dance by Deb Olin Unferth is now up on Full Stop’s website. I loved this book and am so happy to be counted as one of the reviewers for this website, which publishes killer reviews by great writers. Read mine here.
“Boris the Bloodhound” is given new life back at old Opossum. Musician David Brown and I recorded an audio reading with a backing soundtrack composed and edited by DB himself. It is one of the best things I’ve been a part of as a writer, so I hope you’ll listen in. I’ll include the link below. Happy spring!
I am excited to have a story of mine, “Boris the Bloodhound,” published in the Spring 2017 issue of Opossum! Take a look through the journal — it’s pretty, all of it. I’ll share a link to the issue below.
Hello, there. My website went through a little makeover and is up and running again. Please check out my stories (and book reviews!) if you get curious. And if you like one or two of them, give ’em a share. I would be ever so flattered.
