Turkish Delight

The New York Times likes Vendela Vida’s new novel The Lovers. Reviewer Josh Emmons says, “Vida is a subtle writer whose voice is spare and authoritative, at times sounding like a less gothic Paul Bowles, and her third novel is further evidence that she can fashion characters as unpredictable as they are endearing.” (The full review is here.)

The Lovers is available now, and you can meet Vendela Vida at M&Q later this month. She’ll be reading from her novel at 7:30pm, on Tuesday, July 27.–David E
