I've Been Published!

The Front Table, the online magazine of Seminary Co-op Bookstores (a small chain in Chicago), has published my review for Gert Jonke's The System of Vienna. You can read it here.

I have been slaving over this review for two weeks. Serves me right for choosing such a mind-bending book for my very first published review. But I did it, and I am very pleased with the results.

Between these folks and Trapdoor Books, I've been getting lots of love lately! Awesome.

Congratulations, E.L. Fay! So I guess Jonke's a little deeper than Sigrid Undset then? Just kidding, sort of...

Deep and dizzying. It's one of those books where you understand it intuitively; it's just actually articulating it that's the hard part. Which is actually kind of Jonke's point: that attempts to control/explain/order chaos only fall apart in the end. Uh, get it?

Gratz!

Thanks everyone! I hope you all get to read Jonke one day - he was one of Austria and Europe's most famous and influential modern writers.
