My sailing story from the June issue of Maine Magazine, referred to in a previous Autoliterate post, is now online.
This next note has, admittedly, little to do with trucks, cars, highways, or even boats--but (I hope) something to do with aesthetics, which is another Autoliterate preoccupation. My new novel The O'Briens has just appeared in Canada, where it is published by House of Anansi Press. It is available at Canadian retailers, and online at places like amazon.ca and chapters/indigo. The US edition (Pantheon Press) comes out February 2012.
There. Enough puffery.
