“unlike many efforts in this field [the memoir], much more than mere recollection: punishingly alive, sinuously structured, teeming with vivid incident and precise detail, and almost incantatory in its headlong, roiling, and uninterrupted movement forward into an uncertain and endlessly seductive future.” Tablet reviews Life on Sandpaper by Yoram Kaniuk (above).

  • We all know he has Samuel L. Jackson reading for the audiobook of Go the Fuck to Sleep, but Adam Mansbach tells our own Jason Diamond that (among other things) Jim Jarmusch is executive producing a film that Mansbach wrote the screenplay for.
