Here it is. My "third, broken, ugly arm." A book I'm certain Christina Stead would hate, but want Franzen to love.

My book for Ig Publishing's new series, Bookmarked, is available for pre-order. I wrote about the amazing. horrifying novel, The Man Who Loved Children, and my somewhat imaginary relationship to Jonathan Franzen, Stead's relationship to her father and husband, the movie The Blob, fish, vaginas, families, private languages, humor, death, love. a lot about love. I can't wait for this book to come out. In some ways, I feel I want this book in the world more than any of my other books but it's possible I just don't remember how I felt about the other books or have erased those feelings for now, because I'm so consumed about my new books (the other to be announced in March). Anyway, pre-order people! If you want to read a really strange, personal book about a book.

Full Stop let me ask Elisa Albert some questions about After Birth, one of the best reads I've had in ages. Huge congratulations to Elisa.
Thanks to Sarah Rose Etter at the Fanzine for asking me to write about seeing PJ Harvey record at Somerset House. And special thanks to Susan Supercharged for getting me the ticket and inviting me to London. A truly special event.
