Jonathan Franzen’s Praise for Paula Bomer

Jonathan Franzen, author of The Corrections and Freedom, has given some high praise to Paula Bomer’s short story collection Baby (Word Riot Press):

“Reading BABY is like being attacked by a rabid dog— and feeling grateful for it. This is some of the rawest and most urgent writing I can remember encountering.”

When I recover my ability to speak, I’ll let you know. In the mean time, if Jonathan Franzen ever wants a tour of the excellent birding at Sandy Hook, this Jersey girl is game.

If you haven’t gotten your hand on a copy of Baby, there’s no better time. And be sure to pre-order Paula Bomer’s first novel Nine Months, coming out in August 2012 from Soho Press.
