When Breath Becomes AirWhen Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I expected this book to be about the lessons a doctor learned from facing death, but it is more about the lessons a doctor learned about life (the dying part comes later). As the author navigates learning to be a doctor, he shares n... Read more of this blog post »

I came back to find you,
expecting you were waiting at Osh,
your mother distracted by a souvenir
of your father's other wife,
you skipping out with a lie and kisses
promising not to be late but holding
me in a dull park until you were full
of my words and an oath to return--

Stranglehold is a gritty, visceral novel that is totally Jack Ketchum. Ketchum pulls no punches in his fiction. His writing is not for the feint of heart, and this novel certainly fits that bill. In this novel Lydia McCloud marries Arthur Danse, thinking he is the man of her dreams. Things are go... Read more of this blog post »

The truth can be tough, especially in writing. Authors aspire to tell a tale. They gather the courage to put it on paper. They present it to friends and family, receiving a roborant surge of encouragement that emboldens them to pitch query letters.Then finally, a publishing contract is signed a...

Today I witnessed a dude on Twitter mansplaining that “mansplain” (which he spelled “manspain”) is not actually a word, because it’s a “made up sexist insult that literally means a man explaining something to a woman.”

There’s a little more nuance to it than that—specifically it’s a man explaining... Read more of this blog post »

As a longtime print journalist, I admit my relationship with TV news channels was, at one time, somewhat antagonistic. We wanted to scoop them, and we weren’t happy when they reported something we didn’t have.





But as an author, the TV news morning shows, which tend I think of as their...

I don’t think the question is offensive at all! Being told that your characters feel like real people is one of the best compliments an author can receive, IMO. And I actually think this question makes a lot of sense, because if you pare it down to the basics, it’s asking how a character can be “...

Зігріває холодні мулисті береги,
Відбивається у зіницях придонних риб,
Раз на рік зазирає вглиб
На політ стріли,

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
