We're still more than a month from the London pub date for the Jonathan Cape edition of Pacazo, but the book just got its first bit of U.K. press - a nice note in the Pages to Turn section of Monocle, tucked nicely between the new/old Bolaño and the new Murakami. Nice company!
Some excellent news, just in time for holidays wherein people sometimes buy stuff for other people: the ebook versions of All Over and Nothing in the World are out live in the world. The Kindle versions and the Nook Versions are exactly where you'd expect them to be, or check out the Dzanc website for both of those versions and all possible others as well.
Kind words for Pacazo at The Kenyon Review--many thanks to Christian TeBordo.
Many thanks to Christopher Vaughan for the good questions, and to Bookslut for the snazzy real estate.
It's not yet linkable, but thanks to Leona Fridman for her review of Pacazo: "Kesey demonstrates real skill... The book is huge, the narrator is huge, and the amount of information to be processed is huge... Kesey keeps us banging up against the smaller possibilities of understanding and resolution...”
Great questions from Douglas Light at KGB, which also happens to be the location (well, the bar, not the blog) of my first-ever public fiction reading. That was way back in 2006, but I remember it better than yesterday: Peter Carey and Wesley Stace and I, we by god read like houses afire.
Two Random House imprints have bought English-language rights for the U.K. & Commonwealth: Jonathan Cape for hardcover in early 2012, Vintage for softcover in 2013. Many thanks to my excellent agent Maria Massie, to her British co-agent Caspian Dennis, to Cape senior editor Alex Bowler, and to the whole Dzanc team that whipped the novel into shape in the first place.
