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

    Woodrell book is the best I've read this year. Tender, tough, hearbreaking. The guy can't write a bad sentence.


    I'm only on book #22!

    BTW, the Colson Whitehead is The Intuitionist not The Illusionist. A great first novel. I love his second, John Henry Days, even more. Looking forward to seeing what you make of it...

    Thanks Justin, another emailed that and the change has been made. I've been told by many that I'll love JHD even more - and so, look forward to it. Who knows what I'll call it when I review it though!


    Everyone is ahead of me, too! Go on Dan, read Barchester Towers or something.

    Hell, Mr. Champion is on book 89 and I don't even want to ask Lauren Baratz-Logsted what number she's on considering today's the 228th day of the year, I'm sure she's floating over 200 already. And I can't say the Amazon description of Barchester Towers looks all that exciting - "...nineteenth-century novel about clerical politics read by Flo Gibson in her nineteenth-century voice ..." though they do call it a joy. Maybe I'll slide it towards the bottom of that third TBR pile.
