Reading material

New issues of Bookslut and Boldtype are online.

Of note at Bookslut: an interview with Aimee Bender and Michael Schaub’s Guide to the Rock Novel. At Boldtype, there’s a review of Adam Hochschild’s engrossing, if occasionally superficial, King Leopold’s Ghost: A Story of Greed, Terror, and Heroism in Colonial Africa.
