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

    You are too kind, Dan. Thanks so much for the post. As you might imagine, KR’s outreach is entirely due to the efforts of a fabulous team of dedicated folks, led by David. You can bet that Tyler Meier, KR’s new managing editor, will bring even more to the journal. He's sharp, creative, and brilliantly funny: all important qualities for the job.

    I had the privilege of working with Meg for several years. She's wonderful in every way. AWP was always the highlight for us because that's when we got to hang out and spend time with each other. I got a huge kick out of seeing people approach the Kenyon Review table, thinking they were about to speak to an insufferable snob. Within a sentence or two Meg was always in the midst of her infectious laughter. She's so friendly and smart. I loved being in the midst of this kind-hearted, honest, perceptive person, who also happens to work incredibly hard. She does have a sadistic side, however. She used to buy M&M chocolate-covered peanuts at AWP and eat them one peanut per hour so that one little bag lasted the whole AWP weekend. I warned her about doing this. Finally, I had to grab the bag from her and eat them all just to get rid of that little yellow packet. And I gave her a second warning never to torture me like that again, but it didn't stop her. The next year, same thing. Other than that, she's perfect.

    I have yet to meet Meg is person, but through our correspondence before my story was published in the KR I can tell that she is a kind and incredibly hard working lover of literature. I wish Meg all the best.
