On the Dial
This is the sophomore effort of our 'On the Dial' series, where we dish on what we're reading, listening, or watching during any given week. We didn't see or listen to Beyonce's 'Lemonade,' so if you landed here expecting a think-piece, you can shoo. (I wouldn't qualify as an enormous Beyonce fan, and even I can't wait to check 'Lemonade' out.)
Molly had her wisdom teeth taken out on Monday... so she's less smarterer now. (Such a dad joke. I love it.)
On Tuesday, we got to see the great Sherman Alexie at the Columbus College of Art & Design, which was a freaking hoot. I never imagined Alexie would be as funny as he was. He definitely understood that age-old storytelling axiom, 'make 'em laugh before you make 'em cry.'
Malerie, our intern, is cramming for finals... Or so she claims!
I've been reading Christian Kiefer's novella with Nouvella Books, One Day Soon Time Will Have No Place Left to Hide. It's cool and slippery, and I'm enjoying the read so far. I'm looking forward to seeking out his novel, The Animals, soon after. One Day Soon... also features a blurb from Nicholas Rombes, author of The Absolution of Roberto Acestes Laing and writer/director of The Removals, which we're all nervously anticipating the premiere of at the Wexner Center next week.
In addition to gearing up for the premiere, I've been editing J.D. Wilkes' novel, The Vine That Ate the South, as well as preparing for a top-secret project geared towards booksellers that we're plotting with the good people of the Dorothy Project.
In other news, we've been politely bobbing our heads to the Sylvan Esso station on Pandora, and are looking forward to Bully playing at Ace of Cups tonight!
If you're in or near or within five states of Columbus, come out Sunday from 11am to 5pm to the Columbus Flea's Spring Flea at Seventh Son. We'll be there with our glitter tablecloth hocking books!
