Some nice bits of news for Kathy Page recently, including a staff pick for Alphabet at Boswell Book Co., a shout-out on David Abrams's "Front Porch Books" feature on The Quivering Pen blog, and a coveted spot at the Top of the Long List in this week's Barnes & Noble Review. "Canadian short story marvel Kathy Page emerges as the Alice Munro of the supernatural," they comment, "from these heartfelt tales of shapeshifting swimmers, mild-mannered cannibals, and personality-shifting viruses transmitted through kisses." Not bad, eh?
It's actually been a fun south-of-the-border week for Biblioasis generally, with this "Biblioasis wins at tote bags" tweet here from Lev Grossman, books editor at Time magazine. Plus David Abrams had this to say about l'il old us ...
"Speaking of Canada, have I ever mentioned how much I love Ontario-based publisher Biblioasis? If not, then let me correct that lapse right now. Biblioasis has been putting out high-quality, hand-crafted literature for a number of years and I always love it when their books sneak south across the border onto my doorstep."
