A few days ago I sat down and read through the May issue of Bookslut. As usual, there is a mixture of things I am interested in and not all that interested in. What I enjoyed: a review of Paul Auster’s Travel In The Scriptorium, a review of a book I need to pick up soon about Sassy Magazine, and reviews of a group of young adult books, including the excellent Justine Larbalestier.
Word Riot has an interview up with Stephan Chbosky, author of the great book Perks Of Being A Wall Flower. A lot of the interview is spent discussing recent censorship and banning of his book by school districts. SC seems like a cool guy, he even wrote a letter to the one school board who eventually decided not to ban the book. Good for them.
