New Kennedy

My review of A.L. Kennedy’s masterful Paradise, turned in early last week, appears in Newsday today.

Unfortunately, I omitted an important qualification from one sentence. The phrase that reads “a relative stranger, it turns out, and not one with whom she’s having an affair,” should read “a relative stranger, it turns out, and not one with whom she’s having an ongoing affair.” (Back in her room, fortified by whiskey, the protagonist recovers embarrassing memories of a blundering, forgettable one-night stand with the man.) Sorry about the imprecision.

I interviewed Kennedy for this site last year, on the eve of the novel’s publication.
