"Among the Wild Mulattos" Review: The Collagist


Happy Friday, y'all.

I have a new review up: the great folks at The Collagist published my review of Among the Wild Mulattos, a sometimes hilarious, sometimes fantastically philosophical collection of stories about race, identity, and various searches.

You can read my review here. And check out the rest of the issue here. I've never read a bad piece in this journal. Thanks to Gabriel Blackwell and Matthew Olzmann for their hard work in putting out such a great collection of fiction, essays, and reviews every single month, like clockwork.

And if you're so inclined, you can pick up Tom's book here, too. (Not to be all soapbox about this, but avoid Amazon when you can. Shop local, both online and in reality.)

"America, This Is You" Now Up on Hobart

Happy 2016 (again), y'all.

I'm a few days late, but last Friday, the wonderful people of Hobart published a small piece of mine, titled "America, This Is You."

It's a section from my novel manuscript, but I'm not sure if it will remain in the final draft, or will just be this weird little piece of fiction on its own.

So if you like stories about Americana, families, game shows, and chaos, I think this will be up your alley. You can read the piece here.

Again, I love the people behind Hobart. They publish stellar work every week, and founder Aaron Burch has put a lot of my work into the world. And he took the perfect photo that accompanies my piece.
