“There are professional thrills and there are professional thrills, but I am extra especially thrilled to report that FSG is going to be publishing John Darnielle’s novel,Wolf in White Van, this fall. John is famous for his work with the Mountain Goats, and I suspect that none of the many fans who know his lyrics and have heard his stories will be surprised by the revelation that his is a genuinely literary mind. And it’s true—Wolf in White Van emphatically proves that his imagination and voice are at least as at home on the page as they are in song.
There are many things worth singling out for praise in Wolf in White Van:the unforgettable main character, Sean Phillips, who has been isolated by a disfiguring injury since age seventeen; Trace Italian, the intricate game within the novel that Sean created and runs; the interplay of real and imagined worlds, which is both complex and heartbreaking; the structure of the storytelling—audacious, brilliant, and never anything but convincing and unreasonably suspenseful; the prose itself, which is precise and beautiful and (forgive me) lyrical.”

Note: It’s been brought to my attention that people have been posting pictures in the book photo challenge that are not their own. Under NO circumstance is it okay for you to take the work of others and claim it as your own. Please do not steal someones else photo and use it for your own. If you do you MUST give credit, I don’t care if it came from Google, you better give acknowledgement to the original publisher. Using other peoples work defeats the purpose of this challenge and I find it very upsetting that people have been doing this. If you can’t post pictures of your own, or if you can’t give credit where it is due, then do not do the challenge. If this continues to be a problem I will no longer post the challenges.
