Review: Almost Famous Women

I have a new review up at Heavy Feather Review of Almost Famous Women by Megan Mayhew Bergman.


No lie: I really loved this book. I thought it was so well written and researched, and just a treat line by line. I can’t wait to check out Mayhew Bergman’s first book, Birds of A Lesser Paradise. I remember hearing this title but never picked it up. I will rectify that soon.

Oh! And I saw on Twitter that one of my favorite stories from this collection, “The Seige at Whale Cay,” was selected by T.C. Boyle for Best American Short Stories 2015!

New book review – Becky Adnot-Haynes, The Year of Perfect Happines

I have a new book review up at Heavy Feather Review of Adnot-Haynes’s book The Year of Perfect Happiness.

As I say at the end, by chance this is the second book I’ve reviewed recently from a creative writing graduate of the University of Cincinnati. There is exciting work coming out of that program!

Thanks to Heavy Feather Review for letting me review for them! I’m super pleased to be in such good company.
