A scattering of salts

My review of David Mitchell's Black Swan Green is up at the Voice. An irrelevant illustration is available here.
If you're in the market for a 14th and 15th way of looking at BSG, visit this site, which discusses the concept of outliers (using a "black swan" example) and also invokes James Merrill's poem "Black Swan." (Dizzyhead Benno tipped me off to the Merrill.)

Soundtrack: Human Television.

Props to James Marcus. Big ups to Light Reading. And hello, Moss Jervins.

If you haven't already, check out the debut issue of Brigid Hughes's excellent new journal, A Public Space.

Hats off to Chuck Eddy, a dedicated editor.

I'm fighting the urge to read your review because I myself have to read the book and review it for Spec for this weekend. As a fan of Cloud Atlas I'm looking forward to it, though.
