Thank goodness it’s Friday! To kick off the weekend, we’re once again showing our Lookout authors some love. Check out the recent happenings that caught our eye:
- The blog of the Antioch Review recently featured Edith Pearlman on how her short story “Decorum” (Fall 2013 issue) came into being.
- Edith sat down with novelist Carrie Brown, on behalf of The Howard County Poetry and Literary Society of Columbia, MD, to talk about influential writers and how her past as a computer programmer “connects to the brevity and economy of her short stories.” Take a few moments and watch the wonderful interview.
- Benjamin Percy’s novel Red Moon will be adapted into a FOX TV series. Academy Award-winning writer Akiva Goldsman and producer Ilene Staple are working to bring the story to life.
- An excerpt from Maggie Shipstead’s forthcoming novel, Astonish Me, is featured in the 2014 Spring/Summer edition of Buzz Books. The eBook collection includes forty exclusive pre-publication excerpts you can start reading right now, for free in the Kindle, Nook, iPad, and Kobo formats. We’re excited to read a preview of Maggie’s new novel, which comes out April 8!
That’s it for now. Check back Monday for our broadside of the week, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Want to see what we find visually stimulating? Check out our Pinterest boards.
