September 30, 2014 § Leave a comment
Yelena Akhtiorskaya, Panic in a Suitcase
Alex Gilvarry, From the Memoirs of a Non-Enemy Combatant
Phil Klay, Redeployment
Valeria Luiselli, Faces in the Crowd
Kirstin Valdez Quade, Night at the Fiestas: Stories
An interesting mix. The Akhtiorskaya and Klay are 2014 releases, the Luiselli is a 2014 translation of a 2013 original publication in Spanish, the Gilvarry came out in 2012, and Valdez Quade’s debut collection comes out in March 2015. Looks like there’ll be more reading and reviewing for me in the next three months, it seems.
