NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross recorded a review ofTram 83 on September 24, air date coming soon! Deep Vellum Publishing anticipates that it will be another flattering review for the debut novel from African writer Fiston Mwanza Mujila. Library Journal gave the book a starred review on September 15, remarking, "Mujila has turned out a multiaward-winning debut that's decidedly cool and juicy." Sam Sacks reviewed the "contemporary Wild Western" for his Fiction Chronicle in the Wall Street Journal on September 11. Sofia Samatar interviewed author Fiston Mwanza Mujila and translator Roland Glasser for BOMB Daily on September 16.
The Washington Post Book World published its review of the Biblioasis title Arms: The Culture and Credo of the Gun on September 27! In what often becomes a culture war between extremists, the reviewer praised author AJ Somerset as the much-needed voice of the gun-owning moderate and said, "[Arms is] entertaining, often funny and ultimately an important addition to the limited canon on guns." The review did not go unnoticed by the right-wing NRA-sponsored news show Cam & Co., which airs on SiriusXM/Patriot Plus and the Patriot channel. On September 28, the show's host, Cam Edwards, and special guest Tim Graham criticized the review's moderate stance and claimed it attacks the NRA and the right to carry. In response, Biblioasis has scheduled Somerset to join Cam & Co. on Friday for an unedited interview. Stay tuned for more news!
