Literary Blogs

The Elegant Variation – a blog written by LA-based writer Mark Sarvas. He has the reputation of being a jerk, but I don’t know yet if that rap is merited. His blog looks interesting and smart, and he covers substantial literary ground. His blog also been noticed and awarded things on both sides of the Atlantic.

    I can’t find where you wrote about it, but I think you recommended Revere, In Those Days by Roland Merullo. I’m enjoying it immensely. Thanks for the tip. I’m always looking for gook novels (that aren’t totally depressing).

    Good books: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, People of the Book (wow).

  3. Candace Says:

    “Freedom” and “Cutting for Stone” both longggggg reads, but both excellent.
