April Book Reviews at NewPages

The April book reviews are up at NewPages, including my reviews of these:

At or Near the Surface by Jenny Pritchett

The Suburban Swindle by Jackie Corley

The Bathroom by Jean-Philippe Toussaint

Camera by Jean-Phillipe Toussaint

All of these book blew me away, each in a different way.

There's a good review of Shane Jones's Light Boxes, which I read a week or so ago and loved. One of the best books I've read in a long time, along with the books mentioned above. I'm going to write about it soon.

More reviews include:

Vienna Triangle by Brenda Webster

First Execution by Domenico Starnone

Last Night in Montreal by Emily St. John Mandel

The Adventures of Cancer Bitch by S.L. Wisenberg

First We Read, Then We Write:
Emerson on the Creative Process
by Robert D. Richardson

Bending the Notes by Paul Hostovsky

Morning in a Different Place by Mary Ann McGuigan

Comfort by Joyce Moyer Hostetter

Shuck by Daniel Allen Cox

Me As Her Again by Nancy Agabian

Thanks for posting this. I did the same over at my blog.

You know, I've got Light Boxes on queue to review. I'm really looking forward to it.

Take care,

No problem, John. Thanks for spreading the word. I read LB a week or two ago and I'm still thinking about it. Jones did a brilliant job of blending voices and (sur)reality. I'm going to read it again very soon. I look forward to your review.
