More ¡Ajuas! This time, for Lorraine M. Lopez!!!

My confidant and fellow Macondista LORRAINE M. LOPEZ is among this year's PEN/Faulkner Fiction nominees! I can't tell you how thrilled I am for her. Also nominated are Sherman Alexie for War Dances; Barbara Kingsolver for The Lacuna; Lorrie Moore for A Gate at the Stairs; and Colson Whitehead for Sag Harbor. When I spoke to Lorraine about her nomination, she was still in a daze... started to veer into that, "I can't believe my luck" talk. There may be some luck involved, but no amount of luck will get crap writing this kind of recognition. Read about Lorraine and her fellow nominees here.

A Journey of Books

A lovely review of Damas from A Journey of Books. It came out in August but my Google Reader just found it today. I really like the voice of this blogger (and not just because nice things were written). There's a zeal in the voice that I really appreciate. Hope Sisters, Strangers, and Starting Over will get some love from this site as well.
