Afternoon Bites: Patrik Ouředník, The Coathangers, Horacio Castellanos Moya, and more

“His books tend to be unhinged first-person rants, hilarious and chilling. His characters are deluded (even delusional), their overheated psyches riven by the very particular fear that comes from living through decades of insurgencies and counterinsurgencies.” Sheila Glaser reviews Horacio Castellanos Moya’s Tyrant Memory in the Times.

  • Joe Bernardi listens to the latest from the Atlanta punk band The Coathangers: “Even during the album’s lulls, vocalists Julia Kugel and Stephanie Luke keep things interesting. Kugel has one of the strangest, most immediate voices in a scene full of John Dwyer imitators talking into telephones and whooping at the end of every line.”
