Events, Ebook line launching and late reviews
Yes, I have been busy with not only the launch of the Joyland E-books’ first volume, Jim Hanas’ Why They Cried, but also getting ready for September’s readings, which start next week with the Joyland night at McNally Jackson in New York on Sept. 14. Then, we’re off to San Francisco and Dog Eared Books on Friday Sept. 17. Emily and I are talking at Toronto’s Word on the Street Festival on September 26 and then we’re off to Chicago for a Joyland night at The Bookcellar on Thursday Sept. 30.
Reviews of Ronald Reagan My Father are still coming in which is amazing, considering that short fiction is still a bit of the awkward child of publishing. Bookslut said “Nothing short of ludicrous…An experiment with the unexpected” in a reasonably critical take. Jeff Parker, the author of the awesome novel Ovenman said, “[Davis] fucks with America better than almost any writer I know.”
