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

    An intriguing and quirky selection, judiciously reviewed. Thanks, Dan, and Happy New Year!

    Dan, my deepest thanks, as before. So thoughtful & alert a reader is a novelist's naturalborn library companion, & one who makes me strive to deliver, & better. Also, as ever, your post supplied me w/ a good half-dozen titles I've to go out there & get reading.

    I'm so with you on Knockemstiff--I actually liked the first story less than the others, and the only reason I say this is that I'd hate anybody to pick it up and not keep going. This book is a heart punch--a grim, beautiful look at an America we rarely see and men we ought to know better.

    thanks for the review. I've been giving this book to friends whenever possible

    Mini-reviews may be the best kind. Yours are especially telling: Good reading on their own and so helpful. Thanks.

    Regarding #'s 12-16, all Brian Evenson...

    Brian graciously allowed me to interview him for the 2010 Novel & Short Story Writer's Market. He talks about his teaching, the marketplace, MFA programs, American literature, and his own fiction. And there's a lot more I wish I could ask him! Check it out in August of this year (because the Writer's Market is on the same "yearly" schedule as new car models).

    Thanks for a great list!
