"Hall manages to write a perambulatory novel that, like Zeno’s arrow, stays fixed in one place." @safflower_lady on Emily Hall's 'The Longcut.' themillions.com/2022/07/the-sh…
"The recent emergence of the queer Regency romance is attempting something completely new with the genre," writes @AnaQuiring, "something that preserves its pleasures while upending its conservative structure." themillions.com/2022/06/the-ra…
"Hall’s prose has that white-hot, unedited, circular logic of a first draft, the kind that pursues every agitation and impulse down its respective rabbit hole." @safflower_lady on Emily Hall's 'The Longcut.' themillions.com/2022/07/the-sh…
"Austen was the subject of Darma’s dissertation, and as he waited for his advisor’s feedback on drafts of each section, he took walks around Bloomington." @BySarahLayden on Budi Darma's 'People from Bloomington.' themillions.com/2022/07/found-…
"''Hamlet' is a portal, a way to get them out of themselves and then back in again." @adlsimmons teaches Shakespeare's classic tragedy to the class of 2022. themillions.com/2022/07/some-s…
" The universal problems of the stories’ titular 'people'—loneliness, longing for connection—could be set anywhere," writes @BySarahLayden. "Yet they are distinctly and precisely here, in this southern Indiana town." themillions.com/2022/07/found-…
"With each passing year, I see my students struggle more and more to decipher Hamlet’s torrents of language, but they are also increasingly comfortable with Hamlet himself." @adlsimmons on teaching 'Hamlet' to the class of 2022. themillions.com/2022/07/some-s…
"What can wasteful, imprecise language—paired with a minimalist approach to plot and character—reveal about the world?" Excellent question, beautifully engaged with by @safflower_lady. I agree--there's lots more to say about the scope of art, at least another novel's worth . . . twitter.com/safflower_lady…

My favourite review of Budi Darma’s PEOPLE FROM BLOOMINGTON so far! It recognises the author’s craft and the author’s compassion for his unsympathetic main characters within the cruel circumstances they inhabit. Thank you, @BySarahLayden and @The_Millions 🎈twitter.com/BySarahLayden/…T

"Matthiessen believed that civil and political freedom meant comparably little if not accompanied by economic opportunity and security." Scott Bane cements the legacy of literary critic and scholar F.O. Matthiessen. themillions.com/2022/06/the-li…
"These novels imagine queer love and sex as always political," writes @AnaQuiring. "Rather than repeating the Cinderella dream of marrying up, they invent a new one, no less fantastic: romantic love as a conduit to solidarity." themillions.com/2022/06/the-ra…

For @The_Millions, I wrote about my favorite queer theorist, @CatSWrites, and how queer historical romances help us imagine pleasure and community in a hostile world. themillions.com/2022/06/the-ra…

"I believe the best art comes from finding that magic path of least resistance, the lens of your true subjectivity, the little song or gift you have to offer the world." via @The_Millions ow.ly/CaQm50JAx8I

"In something as big as a novel, there’s space to wander afield, digress, get lost, wrestle with a difficult subject and maybe even lose the fight. If things get too well-organized, all the life can go right out of your project." themillions.com/2022/06/wage-w…
I interviewed @parabasis about THE METHOD, one of the great books of 2022. We discussed Stanislavski's enduringly relevant acting theory through a narrative craft lens. A truly fascinating conversation over @The_Millions themillions.com/2022/06/wage-w…

"My hope is the reader can move punctum to punctum through this book, in a kind of textual lily pad dance." @ediemeidav on her lyrical novel 'Another Love Discourse.' themillions.com/2022/06/our-mo…
