Last week we had one publisher and one author and today we have two authors, both whom are publishing with UK's renowned Salt Publishing.
Our first guest is Tania Hershman, author of the great book "The White Road and Other Stories". A tree is planted with Eco-Libris for every sold copy of the book.
Hi Tania, what are you reading now?
I am reading Home by Marilynne Robinson, it's stunning, utterly compelling, beautifully written. And Life in the Universe, a new short story collection by Michael J Farrell. I've read two stories, am loving it.
Any recommendation on a good summer reading?
Short stories are perfect, in my opinion. A few I recommend are: Ali Smith's The First Person and Other Stories, Tamar Yellin's Kafka in Bronteland, Carys Davis' Some New Ambush and Paddy O'Reilly's The End of the World
What you are planning to read this summer?
More short stories! I read a collection a month for review for The Short Review, the online journal I edit. I also read literary magazines, whatever I can get my hands on. And I have the Collected Poems of Elizabeth Bishop.
What is your favorite place to read in the summer?
Inside, in air conditioned bliss! And right now I am at a writing retreat in Ireland, Anam cara, and sitting in the outdoor jacuzzi with a view of the sea is a pretty perfect place to read.
"The White Road and Other Stories" is available for sale in several bookstores - full information can be found at http://www.thewhiteroadandotherstories.com/buy.html
