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

    Great post, Dan! Thanks!


    Hi Dan--thanks for mentioning me!--and for putting together this list. It looks great!


    Great list, Dan. And a great service provided here - for folks not already going to these publishers' sites regularly, and lacking a book catalog from them, these titles can get missed.


    Let me also add, to the publishers listed in this post: I'd love to hear from you with catalogs, e-mail newsletters, etc.

    Jeff Vande Zande

    Thanks, Dan.

    Bottom Dog Press has a web site:


    Great post, Dan - I really appreciate this!

    Kevin Morgan Watson

    Dan, thanks for highlighting Press 53. We're excited about our 2009 titles.

    Sarah Joy

    Looks like a good year in book world! Thanks for the post! =)

    Mary Miller

    Thanks very much for the mention, Dan.

    Sherrie Flick

    Thanks for mentioning Reconsidering Happiness, Dan. That's very sweet of you.


    Thanks for the shout-out, and for the suggestions--my to-read list has just had a growth spurt!

    Mary Akers

    Thanks so much for mentioning Women Up On Blocks--and for bringing so many other exciting titles to my attention! Long live EWN. :)

    Jan Elizabeth Watson

    Thanks for mentioning Asta in the Wings I, too, cannot wait to read a whole bunch of the titles you've listed here.

    Michael Hein

    For those in New York City who cannot wait until the February release date for Asta in the Wings, a book reading will be held in advance of the publication of the brilliant debut novel:

    Word Books
    126 Franklin Street
    Brooklyn, NY 11222
    Wednesday, January 21, 7:30pm
    Independent Press Nights: TIN HOUSE, with Keith Lee Morris (Dart League King), Adam Braver (November 22, 1963), Jan Elizabeth Watson (Asta in the Wings), and Ben Nugent & Rob Spillmam (Tin House Magazine).

    Stacie, HWSchwartz on Downer

    Great tips! A copy of The Twin came through the bookstore and I looked at it, made a mental note to take it home, but someone else snatched it up before me. I'm also excited to see another William Gay is headed to the printing press. He's not well known enough North of the Mason-Dixon line.
