the problem with being trans is cis people. The problem with being queer is straight people. The problem with being disabled is abled people. The problem with being Black is white people. In other words, prejudice.

I have the pleasure of introducing you to The Consolation Prize by Mark Doten (Enthusing About Writing and Bitching About Publishing), a blog out of the beautiful Soho Press.  Today he is featuring an interview with Emily Gould, editorial director at 29th Street Publishing and co-owner of Emily Books, an online bookclub/bookstore.  I noticed them because they brought back one of my favourite writers, Rebecca Brown, whose work I kiss paragraph by paragraph (and we’ve read together, though for the life of me I can’t remember where).  Doten calls this the “best curated” bookclub around.  It’s very clear I could choose all my reading material just from their list and be completely content.  Emily Gould has a first novel, following a book of essays, due out from FSG in July.   All the necessary links are here in Mark’s article:
