This week, Jeffrey Brown gives us:
‘This note is from author Tao Lin. It wasn’t written to me, he wrote to me on the other side, hence this side being crossed out. But somehow this side seemed really appropriate. He’s written a novel (Eeeee Eee Eeee), a book of short stories (Bed) and a book of poetry (You Are A Little Bit Happier Than I Am). I just finished Bed and feel like it’s the kind of prose I’d like to be writing, somewhere between Haruki Murakami and Lydia Davis, but a little younger. It’s thought provoking work that rides the line between discomfort and humour.’
