Rebecca Rosenblum: A Profile

It's been a month of profiles for Rebecca Rosenblum, who's ONCE should hit the bibliomanse driveway sometime next week. A New Quarterly interview, with three stories; a longer interview/profile in CNQ; and now a profile in the Jewish Canadian News, which hit the newstands today. You can read it by following this link:

Rebecca's ONCE was also given a starred review in the September edition of Quill & Quire, though I've not yet seen the review myself. I believe the only other starred fiction title of the issue was Miriam Toews's new novel, so t' is good company to be in. Congrats!

Incidentally, you'll be able to catch Rebecca all over the place next month. She'll be reading September 7th at Eden Mills, where ONCE will be publicly available for the first time. She'll be launching in Toronto at TINARS, at the Gladstone, on September 15th; and she'll be in Winnipeg at Thin Air on the 24th. More Rosenblum events are planned in October and November as well, so stay tuned.
