Andrew's Book Club: March Selections
Andrew's Book Club has announced it's March selections. For those just tuning in, "Andrew" is Andrew Scott, and beginning in January this month he has been picking short story collections to read and discuss. His initial For the first two months he picked one small press book and one big press book, which seemed like a reasonable thing to do. Now he's going with those plus one university press, and this month I'm ahead of him. I already have Jim Tomlinson's Nothing Like an Ocean, published by the University of Kentucky Press. The other picks for this month are Samuel Ligon's Drift and Swerve, from Autumn House, and Mary Gaitskill's Don't Cry. (Gaitskill is also featured this month on the cover of Poets & Writers; her publicist must be doing something right.
