In the Ether

I’ll have more about this when it’s published in the U.S. this summer, but for now, the UK is reacting to Nick Laird’s new novel, Glover’s Mistake. . . . “When the Flock Changed,” an excerpt from Maud Newton’s novel-in-progress. . . . A review of Joe Queenan’s new memoir, Closing Time, which details his rough upbringing in Philadelphia. . . . Nelson George also had a tough childhood (in Brooklyn), and his new memoir, City Kid, is “obsessed with work.” . . . A look back at the dawn of the Thatcher era and the literature that accompanied it.
