If you’re looking for new talent, look no further. Anoka by Shane Hawk is short, clocking in at only 84 pages and with only six short stories, but packs a big punch. Featuring the town of Anoka, Minnesota—purportedly the Halloween capital of the world—and exploring universal human themes through the lens of indigenous life, Anoka is a debut with astounding power.
After a month of end-of-year posts and last week’s bullshit, we’re back—however temporarily it may be—to our regularly scheduled programming. The world still appears to be on fire, but I read a lot of books in December and it’s about time to review them, so today I’ll be telling you about two literary magazines and…Continue reading »
When life-changing political events happen, it can be hard to figure out what kind of presence you’ll have online; do I go on blogging as usual? Do I take a break?
