In our morning reading: revisiting “Among the Thugs,” Sloane Crosley on post-apocalyptic fiction, an album from Rachel B. Glaser, and more.
Mel Bosworth’s book, Freight, is set to come out sometime this year on Folded Word Press. We published an excerpt from the book for our first Sunday Story of 2011. Sloane Crosley talks about her “hardcore” Jewish grandmother. Warren Ellis has a few thoughts on Casino Royale. Let’s talk about the “Great American Novel,” shall we? Never thought that Rhys Chatham’s music would be used to sell cars, but apparently anything is possible. (Via Chris Weingarten’s Twitter)
