Nice Things Said Re: EWN

  • "Dan Wickett is serious about a good read. But the EWN email list doesn't just deliver his sure-footed reviews; it also brings you news and connections to other writers. Sign up now - he understands what readers want to know about books." Quinn Dalton, author, Bulletproof Girl

    "Mr. Wickett is that rarely heard from but best of all possible reviewers - the dedicated and knowledgeable fan. He writes clean-cutting and fresh reviews that represent a sensibility unspoiled by over-exposure to the biz of books, but deeply in love with them." Daniel Woodrell, author, Winter's Bone
  • 3.
    "Dan Wickett is a reader's best friend. Not only does he read and trenchantly review new work, but he looks back to books that deserve ongoing readership. I've lost track of the number of times he's led me to boks that I overlooked (or never knew about), and that were a delight. There aren't many reviewers I will let shape my library, but Dan Wickett is one." Erin McGraw, author, The Baby Tree

    A cover showing kids shooting the finger arouses the wonder of why any publisher with the vaguest aspiration of reaching a broad audience, whose readership is predominately older, non-I Pod men and women, would pander so narrowly. You're not alone. Tin House, in announcing their Winter Issue of fiction and poetry touted in its first paragraph "letters from a shit-house friend." Like you, immune to good taste, they reached out to our youth, our future, where sadness and humor, reflection and irony are all relics of an ancient age. And maybe they are.
