Two year-spanning reading/reviewing projects
January 20, 2013 § 7 Comments
The second reading/reviewing project will debut likely this week first on Gogol’s Overcoat and then later in the year here. I plan on re-reading and reviewing the fiction of Flannery O’Connor, with a single short story or novel most of the remaining weeks in 2013. Last year’s Faulkner reviews, which I did pause in completing after 15 installments and plan on resuming at some point in the future, were some of my favorites to write and they helped me in my development as a critical reviewer. Since I rate O’Connor very close to Faulkner in terms of quality (not to mention she provides another view of my beloved/sometimes-hated native American South), hopefully these reviews will expose more readers to her excellent fictions.
Of course, all things are subject to change, but I shall do my best to cover as many of their works this year as possible. Combined, they’re only a little over 40 reviews that involve reading in most cases less than 150 pages per review, so it shouldn’t be too much of a strain.
