"I definitely would prefer social science fiction to science fiction, as I really didn’t intend these books to ask deep questions about technology or bioengineering or inter-galaxy relations. Instead, they wonder about city living, architecture, language and communication, desire, and community—the same things I wonder about in my own life." Read a fantastically interesting interview with Renee Gladman over at BOMBlog.

Another great review from Publishers Weekly . . .

. . . this time for Manuela Draeger's In the Time of the Blue Ball (translated from the French by Brian Evenson): "In three short stories with a distinct Murakami vibe, hapless investigator Bobby Potemkine threads his way through his city’s meteor-shredded ruins to find out which of several women named Lili has really invented fire, what to do about an angry noodle named Auguste Diodon, and how to rescue the many baby pelicans that litter the roads."

Publisher's Weekly

Read the excellent advance review of Renee Gladman's The Ravickians in Publishers Weekly, here. A sample: "Gladman’s talent for linguistic architecture makes for a supple, tight promenade through heady ideas whose appeal rests on the implicit connection it draws between a people, their language, and the shape of communication.
