“I just read Kelly Link’s Get In Trouble, and it’s awesome. She’s a master, really great. I also loved A Manual for Cleaning Women by Lucia Berlin — it’s so good! She’s so raw and funny. It’s gallows humor, and her writing is sharp sharp sharp. She died in the ’90s so it feels as if you’re making this friend you’ll never be able to talk to again. I also loved the new Joy Williams collection, The Visiting Privilege. Reading her voice repeating over and over again showed me distinct she is.”
