Son of Table-Talk of P.G. for June 8, 2008
I. New Believer is out! Not the music issue (which will appear next month) — but a "must-have" all the same...Zadie Smith...Blake Bailey on John Cheever and Frederick Exley...Dzyd Linden on B.S. Johnson...Paul Feig Sedaratives...interviews with Gus Van Sant and newly minted Blvr. Book Award winner Tom "Remainder" McCarthy...and much more!
II. Anyone know anything about Meatpaper?
III. I talk about six of my favorite books over at The Week—I hadn't realized two-thirds of them were out of print...
IV. A Korean review of Personal Days!
V. I'll be reading in New York and Boston (well—Newtonville!) later this week. More here soon.
