– A lovely poem for Boston.
– The author of one of my favorite novels last year, American Dervish, takes the Pulitzer for his latest play. (Dying to see it– hope it comes to Atlanta!)
– The latest issue of Granta has a diverse list of the Best of Young British literary stars. Here’s a beautiful slide show with their photos.
– I loved this new flash fiction from Guernica.
– Ottesa Moshfegh wins the Paris Review’s Plimpton Prize for Fiction. (Links to her exquisite short stories are in the article.)
– Are there really any such things as stupid writer tricks? (One writer succumbs to the advice in author interviews.)
– I predict that this hilarious picture book would make a lousy movie.
– Soniah Kamal is guest editor of the South Asian issue of SugarMule, No Place Like Home: Borders, Boundaries & Identity in the South Asian Diaspora, for which I was lucky enough to contribute. She has released a stunning issue trailer well worth watching. If you have time, please take a look. I’ll publish the link to the issue here when it’s published.
