Chaon & Betts

Two more 9L contributors have new books. Check them out!

Await Your Reply by Dan Chaon (vol. 4, no. 2).

"...Mr. Chaon succeeds in both creating suspense and making it pay off, but “Await Your Reply” also does something even better. Like the finest of his storytelling heroes, Mr. Chaon manages to bridge the gap between literary and pulp fiction with a clever, insinuating book equally satisfying to fans of either genre." - Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Arc & Hue by Tara Betts (vol. 5, no. 2)

"Tara Betts deftly crafted stanzas are infused with a relentless lyricism and a Chi-town girl's sensibility. This debut collection solidifies her status as a defiant and singular voice, joyous indication of a fresh new direction in poetry." - Patricia Smith
