This article by J.A. Konrath, on using technology to promote one’s work, goes a little too far for my comfort. For example: For some reason I’ve avoided the MySpace frenzy. Sage practicing writers, do you think it’s essential? Thoughts on the rest of the article?
And here’s one from the Writer’s Digest archive: Miriam Sagan’s helpful hints on writing “poems that get published.” I’m certainly considering her advice!
No, I’m not going to link to every review of Exit Ghost. James Wood’s will certainly do. But one thing I’m realizing as I read through many of the discussions of this book: I am very glad that I finally got around to reading The Ghost Writer this fall. Seems as though that might be the essential “prequel” to have read among all Roth’s Zuckerman novels to best appreciate this one.
