The Week in Reviews: “Wild” in The Times, Moz Reissues, Ben Marcus, and More

  • “Her grief, early in this book, is as palpable as her confusion. Her portrait of her mother, who died of cancer at 45, is raw and bitter and reverent all at once.” – The New York Times reviews Wild by Cheryl Strayed.
  • “Marcus’ previous texts were essentially acts of de-familiarization, inventing new lexicons and theories to bolster strange visions of unreality; The Flame Alphabet, for all its conceptual bravado, is rooted more or less in the world we know.” – Spectrum Culture takes a look at The Flame Alphabet  by Ben Marcus.
