A Little News

Aritzia has some lovely words for ISLE: “Throughout these stories, van den Berg creates her own forsaken landscapes, and as with the strange colours of the Aurora Australis, she casts each tale in an unexpected, almost exquisite, glow.”

At The Quivering Pen, novelist extraordinaire David Abrams includes ISLE in his latest Front Porch Books round-up.

The Nervous Breakdown kindly ran an excerpt from “Lessons,” a story in ISLE, + a self-interview this week.

Thanks to Gigantic and Mini-Monster issue guest editor Adrian Van Young, I have a new story called “The Child” in their latest (which Jia Tolentino was nice enough to write about in The Hairpin). Hurray for monsters!
