My First Published Review

Prairie Schooner has accepted my review of Lydia Peelle’s new collection of short fiction, Reasons for and Advantages of Breathing, for publication in an upcoming issue!

This is my first book review. It was an awkward process on some levels, even though I’ve produced plenty of critical essays, conference papers, and book reports on the way to an MA. Coming up with analysis wasn’t really difficult–or more difficult than it was before–but assuming that withdrawn, critical mantle was challenging. Apparently I’d forgotten what it meant to write like an academic. It was kind of fun, actually, once I got back in the swing of it. And it’s refreshing to know that blogging hasn’t ruined my aptitude for formal composition after all.
