Congratulations!

To Attica Locke, whose Black Water Rising is short-listed for the Orange Prize!

And to Victor LaValle who just won a Guggenheim fellowship!

Black Water Rising and Big Machine are both in paperback and are both excellent. Buy them!

I loved Black Water Rising and would recommend it highly to anyone who works in law, politics, or union organization. It's also a very intelligent mystery, for people who like their mystery smart.

Big Machine is awesome. I bought it in cloth because I couldn't wait.

It nice to see Black Water Rising make so many shortlist. Its a great book and deserves the attention

Pearl Cleage's new book - Till you hear from me is out. I can't wait to read it.
