I wrote a feature on Maile Chapman’s excellent gothic novel Your Presence Is Requested at Suvanto that’s up over at the Graywolf Press website. It reminded me how much I like really digging into books and trying to figure out what makes them tick–even if you can only scratch the surface. So expect me to be posting a few such attempts here in the near future. Until then, though, go check out Suvanto. The weather’s been terrible around here, and there’s nothing like a gothic novel to cure a late spring depression.
