And in the Memphis Flyer


Interview in the Commercial Appeal

Thanks to John Beifuss and the CA for this interview. What I don’t know is if you can access this link if you’re not a subscriber…but you can try. I believe–I’ve been led to believe–that it will be in the paper paper tomorrow, possibly in a truncated version.

Memphis Movie reviewed

Interview with Hypertext Magazine

Chelsea Laine Wells at Hypertext did this in-depth interview about Memphis Movie. Some time today they are adding an excerpt from the novel to their site.

Thanks for reading.

This new review

Memphis Movie, freshly released by Soft Skull press, is the latest book from prolific poet and novelist and all around Renaissance man Corey Mesler. This novel spirals deep into the moviemaking process, the chaotic world of stardom, and the increasingly unstable tectonic shifts of director Eric Warberg’s psychology. Human relationships are handled at times delicately, at times callously, always with honesty, in this masterful synthesis of fiction and reality set in the richly contradictory landscape of Memphis.”

Marybeth on the Radio

I’ll try to remember to send a reminder.
