Craig's Picks

I'm a huge fan of innovative and moving fiction. Lots of love for modernists and pretty much anything that came out of Ireland during the first half of the 20th century. I also adore travel narratives and slightly off-center approaches to nonfiction (Here's looking at you, Maggie Nelson). Let's talk books sometime.
