Weekend Reading

Things to read while you’re standing in line at the supermarket this weekend that will be way more interesting than just checking facebook again: 

Tin House Flash Fiction Friday: A Good Body by Virgie Townsend

Guernica interview with Rachel Kushner, National Book Award finalist & author of The Flamethrowers

From the American Short Fiction blog: Bourbon and Milk: Dead Kitties and Shallow Graves, part of an “an ongoing series that dives into the perplexing spaces parenting sometimes pushes us, and explores the unexpected ways writers may grow in them.”

Goodbye to All That: A Scary Short Story by Callie Collins, codirector of Austin small press A Strange Object, via The Toast.

The Great 2014 Indie Press Preview, courtesy of The Outlet, the blog of Electric Literature. 

Poetry from Gulf Coast Journal: Tim Riggins Speaks of Waterfalls by Nico Alvarado.

Flashback to 1999: Publisher’s Weekly talked with David Foster Wallace in a K-Mart about Brief Interviews with Hideous Men. Flashback to 1996 when PW called Infinite Jest a “brilliant but somewhat bloated dirigible…” and added, “..the nebulous, resolutionless ending serves to underscore Wallace’s underlying failure to find a suitable novelistic shape for his ingenious and often outrageously funny material.”

Happy Friday!
