Lydia Millet has relaunched her website. If you haven’t read Oh Pure and Radiant Heart or Everyone’s Pretty, there are now excerpts of these books for your enjoyment — as well as an assortment of other writings. And coming in September 2007 from Soft Skull Press: How the Dead Dream. You can also listen to a conversation with her, when I was still pretty green at this interviewing thing, at The Bat Segundo Show #12.
I have constant problems because I get Lydia Millet mixed up with Lynne Tillman. They’re both sort of loopy comic novelists who publish with Soft Skull. I actually have two Tillman books on my “to read” pile and hopefully once I’ve read them her name will be seared into my memory. Still, I wonder if this is a common problem, or just another sign of the horrendous decay of my brain.
