Meanwhile, Over At Quadrapheme: Best Books of May, Part Two

Meanwhile, Over At Quadrapheme is my new way of showcasing the work I do for Quadrapheme: 21st Century Literature. It’s an online literary review for which I’m the managing editor. I also still write reviews, and compile a monthly two-part list of books being released that month. Here’s the second part of May’s list, featuring a novel about Charles Dickens’s The Pickwick Papers; a story collection about the boundaries of the real and surreal in middle America; nonfiction on the 1944 Ardennes offensive and on the power, both psychological and literary, of narrative structure; and the third poetry collection, exploring the concept of taboo, from Irish poet Caitriona O’Reilly.
