Spark, and Interview with Courtney Elizabeth Mauk
It was my great pleasure to read Spark, a mesmerizing debut novel from Courtney Elizabeth Mauk and the ever-excellent Engine Books. The author very kindly answered my questions about the inspiration for her story, her writing process, her favorite things about Brooklyn, and much more. You can read my review and interview over at LitStack.
In other very essential news...thanks to a very generous gift certificate (from a very generous gift-giver!), I indulged in a bookish shopping spree at Powell's - newly arrived in my mailbox: recently released NW by Zadie Smith and Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter, as well as a few older ones I've been meaning to get to for a while - Marcy Dermansky's Bad Marie, and Patrick Somerville's The Cradle. Can't wait to get started!
What books are you most looking forward to this fall? Share in the comments, and happy reading!
