The first reviews of M.A.C. Farrant’s new collection of short fictions are in!
The Vancouver Sun was first, last week publishing a review by Candace Fertile calling The Days: Forecasts, Warnings, Advice “great fun, but it also makes you look at the world in a fresh way.” Highlights include:
Once again M.A.C. Farrant has delivered a packet of fictional snippets with heft. … Grounded in the everyday, Farrant’s observations reveal the unusual in the usual, and she does it with her charming and quirky sense of humour. … Farrant has her finger firmly on the pulse of contemporary life and can see both its beauty and its flaws, and they’re often the same thing.
Then, just yesterday, Publishers Weekly called The Days “a beguiling, quirky delight … Ever-whimsical and confidently left-field.” Read the full review online.

On Meta-Talon today, please enjoy the full text of the presentation given by Carl Peters at the Modern Languages Association convention in New York City on January 7, 2018. This talk responds to the question posed in the MLA convention session Rhetoric in Post-Factual Times: how to perform textual analysis in a time when facts are no longer the marker of good argumentation. (Peters’s talk is also related to his work on Stein; Peters is recently the author of Studies in Description: Reading Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons.)
