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

    I just started my own list of favorite short stories last night! I chose the same two Carver and Hemingway stories as you, but I chose O'Connor's "Good Country People." I would love to see some type of "best of" list like the Modern Library's list of best novels. I will have to read some of your other selections. Thanks!

    Brilliant idea!

    In my first year of college my don, Lucy Rosenthal, gave me a binder full of short stories that I used in my studies over the course of that year. That collection became so important to me that, despite numerous moves and teeny apartments, I still have it.

    But, Marcel, I never thought of this as a "mixed tape" before. Brilliant! I think I know what everyone in my life is going to be getting from me this year for the holidays.


    Oh, wow, this is a great idea! If I could, I would definitely force everyone to read Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote, instead of watching the bowdlerized screen version with Audrey Hepburn (charming as it is). It's just so much better in print.
