hi! it's still me! this weekend i made a fancy new website for guillotine & retired the rejectionist. it's a little sad to say goodbye to le r.; i had no idea when i started the blog nine (!!!) years ago that it would change my entire life, bring me many of the people i love most dearly, or become (modestly) legendary (in a fairly limited circle) (well, maybe not "legendary," but indulge me). i will miss that irascible, intemperate person i pieced together on the fly during what was one of the most difficult years of my life; she will remain archived, however, at therejectionistsaysno.blogspot.com (BLOGGER!!!! o, were we ever so young!!!!).
also, i'm not going anywhere! i will continue to write about books that i love with utter irregularity at this new home! shit's real fucked out there but boy have i read some fantastic things lately (cara hoffman's RUNNING! out this month! hanna lillith assadi's SONORA, out next month! cristina moracho's A GOOD IDEA, also out next month! SHIRLEY JACKSON: A RATHER HAUNTED LIFE, very sharp; aracelis girmay's THE BLACK MARIA, holy shit) and i will tell you more about them at length shortly. i swear, i really do.
if you have been reading the rejectionist since forever: thank you, from the bottom of my heart. i have been lucky enough over the last near-decade (!!!!) to have some of the smartest, funniest, and most talented people on the planet find their way to me through that blog. & whether you're a longtime reader or a new one, hang in there; these are hard times, but we're some tough-ass motherfuckers. i have faith in us. RESIST.
