While I might add two or three more stories to the list of those that I continued to carry after completing the collection, I do understand the issue you take with Everett's stories. I'd heavily recommend his novels though, if you found the stories above average. And good news, his production level is being maintained--a new poetry collection just hit stores recently and Graywolf has another novel coming in the Fall.

Wow, I'd be FASCINATED to see what his poetry is like. Good tip -- thanks! And yeah, I've only read his stories so far, despite meaning to read "Erasure" for the last five years or so... maybe thenew novel presents a review opportunity? Anyways, I am bowled over by how productive he is... makes me feel lazy for sleeping at night.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
