Though sleep-deprived and too wired to think properly — the week my first novel came out was also the week of an ice-cream party at the library, and I’ve taken to mixing leftover Hershey’s syrup with coffee, with uncertain results — it seemed worthwhile to collect all the links that started me freaking out in the first place. Not my usual week, exactly. Without further ado, here they are:

“Hardboiled Existentialism” (Jon Michaud, New Yorker Page-Turner blog)

“The St. Louis Invasion: Franzen’s The Twenty-Seventh City at Twenty-Five” (The Millions)

“You’re a Very Nosy Fellow, Kitty Cat” (Woody Brown, ArtVoice)

“The Last Preface” (Tin House)

“Weird, Surreal Tale of Midwestern City” (Harper Barnes, St. Louis Post-Dispatch)

“Review: The Facades by Eric Lundgren” (Tobias Carroll, Minneapolis Star-Tribune)

“The Opera Singer Vanishes” (Laura Miller, Salon)

I am going to lay off the Hershey’s and coffee, soon.
