Currently Reading

New books pop in more frequently these days.  Like what? S&S sent the paperback of Alexis Wright's CARPENTARIA, the one about the Aborigines that I loved. It's a terrible print job, but a wonderful story to revisit. Why do publishers send the paperback editions to reviewers who have already published reviews of a book when it came out in hardback? If it weren't so good, I wouldn't even mention it here.

I asked the Free Press for WISENHEIMER by Mark Oppenheimer because in the PR it sounded funny (in a good way) and the author sounded a lot like me with the love of words thing.  It's not and he's not.  It's all about debating.  Yawn!

Atria Books surprised me with WRITE THAT BOOK ALREADY! by Sam Barry and Kathi Kamen Goldmark, the Author Enablers at I just started reading this one with some trepidation. It has a chapter about self-publishing. In fact, the book is about getting published, not about writing.  The authors' breezy style is a bit off-putting, and the fact that they don't discuss getting an agent until chapter five, disquieting.  We'll see.
