Yesterday, my friend Serena Agusto-Cox wrote to tell me that an Appleton librarian named Tasha (of Waking Brain Cells) had read Small Damages and had very kind things to say. (Serena sends word of kind reviews from time to time, and because of her, I get to thank the reviewers.) Tasha's beautiful words are deeply moving; they epitomize the graciousness of her city.
Late last night, meanwhile, I received an email from Tamara Smith, who had interviewed me so graciously about the role of landscape in my work (and mind) a few weeks ago. Tamara's BookBrowse review of Small Damages had gone live, and she was writing to let me know. The review is breathtaking—and it, too, says as much about the person behind the review as it does about the story I tried to tell. Perhaps even more.
A morning hug, to you all.
