Nice Things Said Re: EWN

    "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

    "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

    LB has been one of my top five favorite writers for years, ever since I read Dirty Work, unbelievable novel. Thanks for letting me know this title is coming out.

    I tell this story to whoever will listen, but my wife found LB's Big Bad Love in the bargain bin at KMart in the early 90s, and I have been a rabid fan ever since. I'm only about a third into 'Catfish,' and while so far it's not my favorite of his works--that would be 'Joe' or 'Big Bad Love'--it's as good as anything I've read this year or last or the year before that, and all the better and more bittersweet because we ain't getting any more.

    Little bit of info:

    This year's Conference for the Book in Oxford, MS is all about Larry Brown. Panels with Mark Richard, Rick Bass, Beth Ann Fennelly and more.

    Here's a link to the conference's site:


    For sheer reading pleasure, it's hard to think of a better book than Larry Brown's Fay.


    A Miracle Of Catfish - - This is my introduction to the work of Larry Brown. I was "hooked" almost immediately. When I reached the notes for the final chapter I was stunned that the several story lines would not be taken to completion. I was left feeling this is the story THUS FAR. Wonder, using the notes how I might take the miracle further.
