Sinister Regard : Contests
            

Chicago, I am in you, and I'm feeling great after an unprecedented 14 hours of sleep last night.

I'm very excited for tonight's episode of the Tuesday Funk reading series, where I'll be appearing together with Elaine Hegwood Bowen, Nick Disabato, Sarah Hollenbeck, and my good friend Kyle Thiessen. The event takes place upstairs at Hopleaf at 7:30 pm, and it's free!

I used to host Tuesday Funk, so I'm always eager for a chance to come back. I'll be reading, of course, from The Accidental Terrorist, and I'll also have copies there for sale. Doors open at 7:00 pm—come early so you can get a seat.

Tuesday Funk for November 3, 2015
Greetings, Accidental Army! I haven't written a new poem in a while, but that subject line is almost a poem in its own right. But we have only 12 days left until the official release of The Accidental Terrorist and a lot to talk about before then, so let's get to it.

Review

First, I'd like to bring a terrific new review to your attention. Elena Colás reviewed The Accidental Terrorist last week for Chicago Literati, and while I hope you'll head over there and read the whole thing, I wanted to call out one paragraph in particular that I was very glad to see:

I felt his portrayal of his younger self was somehow more compassionate than I've read in other coming of age memoirs. When I finished this book, I was reminded of Joan Didion's advice that we are "well-advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be." Shunn resists the temptation to paint himself as either naive or savvy, opting instead for the kind of even-handed description that had me wondering pretty far into the book whether the author was still a practicing Mormon.
