End of the Story

15 Jun

My review of Liliana Heker’s The End of the Story, pitched as “the definitive novel of Argentina’s Dirty War,”  is up on the Ploughshares blog today. As with my review of Minuet for Guitar, I’m trying out a new form, composing a review-in-lists, rather than standard paragraphs. I think it’s a fun way of trying to break out of standard review patterns, but I’m curious to know what readers think. Feel free to leave a comment and let me know!

On a related note, Nikolai Grozni’s Wunderkind came out in paperback this week. Here‘s my review from October.

    I really love the list format, personally. I’m assuming you’ve come across The Pillowbook of Sei Shonagon…I would love to see more people take her prompt as a master list writer…

      Yes, she was probably in a corner of my mind when I came up with the idea. I understand lists are gaining popularity as a creative writing form.
