Spring Fiction

After a minor delay, I see the Kirkus Reviews Spring and Summer Preview is available online. I contributed several spotlight features to this issue including the segments on The Raw Shark Texts by Steven Hall, The Religion by Tim Willocks, and The Ministry of Special Cases,the debut novel by acclaimed short story writer Nathan Englander.

The special also has previews of several interesting books I'll have to chase down including the new satire by Christopher Buckley, a fascinating Italian entryby crime writer Massimo Carlotto, Jim Crace's mindbending look at a potential future in The Pesthouse,and Everett True's biographyof Nirvana.
