I loved Bigness of the World (my review can be found here) by Lori Ostlund so I was really happy to hear that the book is now available in paperback because hardcover books are evil. I have this book in hardcover and now I can give it away and replace it with a book I won’t resent. A book giveaway is coming. Hang tight. In the meantime, The Bigness of the World can be ordered through Â Amazon or the Â University of GA Press, or, best of all, you could ask your favorite Â independent bookstore to order it.
You may also like to know that two stories from the collection will soon be anthologized elsewhere. “All Boy,” originally published inNew England Review, will be out on September 28 in Â The Best American Short Stories 2010. I can’t tell you where the other story will appear yet but it will be in a big book with many pages covered in lovely words.
