In our afternoon reading: interviews with David Grubbs and Haruki Murakami, new writing by Alexander Chee, and more.
So. No witty introduction this time, as that seems a little tone-deaf right now. We will be very honest here: we’ve gotten a lot of news of book release dates being rearranged as of late, for understandable reasons. These are, to the best of our knowledge, all books due out this month that we’re excited to read. It’s possible that some of these will be out at a later date instead. Our recommendation still holds, regardless of the month. Support your local bookstores now; support your local bookstores later.
In this morning’s reading: interviews with Kyle Minor and Sean H. Doyle, thoughts on John Cage and recorded music, mosh pit-inspired art, and much more.
For your weekend reading: interviews with David Grubbs and Fiona Maazel, an excerpt from Teju Cole’s latest, new essays from Maud Newton and Cari Luna, and more.
