Kate Walbert is not the only One Story author who got a great review this week in the New York Times Book Review–Joe Meno (author of the upcoming One Story issue #122 “Children Are the Only Ones Who Blush”) got a rave for his new novel, The Great Perhaps. You might remember Joe from his collection Demons in the Spring, which was a finalist for the 2008 Story Prize.
For those of you who came out last night to Powerhouse Arena, you already know what a talented writer and great reader Joe is. For those of you who didn’t, you still have a chance to see Joe and hear about his love of giant squids before he heads back to Chicago. He’ll be reading tonight at McNally Jackson bookstore at 7 pm. Come by and tell him we sent you, or stop by his website to find out where else he’ll be reading, but most important, you should head out and buy the book.
