1) Shelley Jackson recently authored and illustrated a children’s book: Mimi’s Dada Catifesto.

2) Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer recently reviewed fellow S.O. author Tom McCarthy‘s C for Canada’s The Globe & Mail. Excerpt from the review:

Over and over, there is coupling, anti-erotic even in its eroticism, with Serge re-enacting his first sexual encounter — seeing, yes, as shadow play through a screen, his brilliant sister being taken from behind by his father’s friend, a decoder, whom she has essentially seduced. Or perhaps this is his second sexual encounter; the first involved Sophie tapping out a message in Morse code on his tiny penis (thrusting us and, surely, the aptly named Serge, back and forth between the electric and the erotic).
