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

    « Readings | Main | Novella Month - Book Review 2012-015: Whatever Happened to Gloomy Gus of the Chicago Bears? by Robert Coover »

    June 22, 2012



    Ok. Why am I just discovering his genius?!!! (and yes, I mean "discovering" in a strictly colonial/exploitative/Columbian (as in Christopher) way in that it was something that already existed and I am just becoming aware of it.) I just finished I Am Not Sidney Poitier and, like a bad transplant, (and yes, that is a very tasteless allusion to the Gary Coleman allusion in the book) my body is rejecting all non P.E. text. I have a stack I am ripping through between tweets. (That sounds sooooo flatulent!)

    Dan Wickett

    glad to see there's another big PE fan visiting around here.


    Yes, Dan! Poitier was the first one I read and I am HOOKED! I ordered Erasure through Amazon and requested 6 more from my local library. I am a junkie. Have you ever heard him read and discuss his work in person?

    Dan Wickett

    I have not. I've simply read everything he's published, reviewed all but one of the books so far here at the EWN, done an email interview with him, and soon will be publishing, via Dzanc Books, a handful of his back list in eBook form!


    Wow, Dan. "Simply." :)

    Patrick Gulke

    I share the Everett enthusiasm. Can't wait for the new book. Did you hear the podcast of the event he and Steve Erickson did together a few months back? He read from the new novel.
    Also wondering whether a piece I found floating on line called "confluence" has become part of the forthcoming novel. By the description it seems so.

    Dan, can i ask which early titles will be available as ebooks? I loved the Body of Marin Aguilera & that's a hard one to track down.

    Emerging Writers Network

    Thanks, Patrick--I missed that podcast and "confluence" and need to go search for both.

    eBooks will include:

    · For Her Dark Skin
    · The Weather and Women Treat Me Fair
    · Suder
    · Walk Me to the Distance
    · Cutting Lisa
    · The Body of Martin Aguilera
