A big honor to see Gravesend on Woody Haut’s Favorites of 2016 list. He’s a writer I’ve long admired. Incredible company here too. Sallis, Abbott, Ginsburg–my favorites of the year. Mercedes Lambert’s El Niño blew me away. Garnier’s Goodis book. Simenon. Hinkson. Evenson. Lots of stuff I can’t wait to check out–Gonna order the Martinet now. Thanks, Woody.
Also reminds me that in his review of Gravesend, Haut wrote: “It’s the sort of book that one might find buried beneath the rubble of an early Springsteen song.” That’s my favorite thing anyone’s said about the book.
