Well I guess I'm going to have break down and get Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. Vilage Voice also has it listed as one of the top books of the year. I'll probably wait for the paperback, but with this much high praise it must be at least halfway decent. Like the Post and NY Times, they also picked Pamuk's Snow, but they've also included some that are a little more quirky and edgy than what the others offered up. Linh Dinh's Blood and Soap sounds interesting, and some like The Haunted Hilbilly sound downright wacky.
And for Lady Lit Blitz who just saw the Pixies, The Voice also has a fun article on the Pixies Reunion.
I'm working up my review on the Gargoyle issue, and should have it up later today or early tomorrow, depending on motivation. I also just finished the issue of Grand Street, which is fabulous. Sad that it's the last one ever. Good timing, too, because I just got the new Fence in the mail today.
