11/14/22 I recently interviewed author Kathryn Ma for Publishers Weekly and reviewed Celeste Ng's Our Missing Hearts for Oprah Daily. Next up: A guide to new bookish television adaptations and a conversation with literary icon Percival Everett. For a full list of work with links, please click over to: "Bio and Recent Writing."
I'm excited to have two new reviews to share today. Both make great summer reading:
Honey and Spice, New York Times July 1, 2022
In this witty and incisive first romance novel, Black British author Bolu Babalola plays with familiar literary romance tropes to explore questions about gender, sexuality and modern dating.
Little Nothings, BookPage July 2022 (Print edition)
In Julie Mayhew's Greek island-set thriller, little cuts do lasting damage and friendships are as intense and heartbreaking as romantic relationships.
