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

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

    I have an old issue of TriQuarterly with Amy Hempel's "In the Cemetery Where Al Jolsen is Buried." That one I'm keeping. Also, the two 1980's era "American Dirt" issues of Granta with stories by Ford, Russo, Gilchrist, Erdrich, Mason, Wolff, Carver, and more.


    I'm a hoarder. I don't count. I save everything literary. I still have to first journal I ever wrote and the first publication I fell in love with--the Black Panther Party newsletter. Yes. I was in elementary school, but that was some good writing.

    I keep a few biggies (e.g. Paris Review and BOMB) because I will return to them over and over. For others I keep only the ones where I fell in love with a story or poem. I donate any zines I'm done with to Richard Hugo House's ZAPP


    When my uncle passed away, I inherited most of his collection of The Paris Review (I think back to the second year of publication). And I'll only get rid of other lit journals if someone wants them--I just can't throw out a book.
