Sergio and his wife have allowed up to publish the first eight pages of Personae up at The Quarterly Conversation.
I have to admit that I’m damn curious about this book. The whole mini-furor over A Naked Singularity is different from most anything I’ve seen surrounding a recent work of fiction. (I suppose Evan Dara achieving a review of his self-published second novel, The Easy Chain, in Bookforum by Tom LeClair would be about the closest comparison.) I hope to read both of De La Pava’s books in the upcoming months.
And as previously noted, if you’d like to thank me for what goes up on these sites all year, this is the week I’m badgering everyone for pledges.
