Publishers Weekly Gives Epistolophilia a Starred Review

10 seconds - a star is born by winterofdiscontent

Of the publishing industry’s four major trade magazines (the other three include Kirkus, Booklist, and Library Journal), Adelle Waldman writes at Slate that “Publishers Weekly, or PW, is the biggie—it plays Coke to Kirkus‘ Pepsi.” A “'starred’ review in PW still increases a book’s chance of getting media coverage and showing up in your neighborhood bookstore." These also determine which books Amazon promotes." 


A starred review indicates a book of outstanding quality.


Imagine my pleasure when I came across a starred review of my book, Epistolophilia: Writing the Life of Ona Šimaitė

"I knew someone was going to call me out on that, Lloyd. I realize failure is not always closely followed by success, nor is it always followed by success, but it's still nice to hear these stories. I think it's important to know that…"

"OK, I should have also mentioned that my memoir was rejected 84 times before I gave up. Silly me, I'm now pitching a novel, 12 rejections so far, but 2 requests for the manuscript. I wonder why I do this when I feel low and then I remember that…"
