Barbara Browning’s The Gift is a NYTBR Editor’s Choice, and Nir Baram’s A Land Without Borders Receives Rave Review; Edward McPherson on To the Best of Our Knowledge

The genre of memoir has long blurred the line between factual and emotional truth; in The Gift, Barbara Browning pushes this distinction even further into the land of autofiction, where a literary work is influenced heavily by real people and events in the author’s life but is still distinctly original. The result is so powerful, the New York Times Book Review’s May 28 issue has a glowing review about The Gift. As the lead fiction review for the week, The Gift is “A smart, funny, heartbreaking, and often sexy delight of a novel that presses hard against the boundaries of where literary and artistic performances begin and end.” The New York Times Book Review followed up the review with an Editors’ Choice selection for June 4. Browning was previously interviewed about her unique work in Nylon magazine on May 8. Another notable Consortium title, this time firmly on the non-fiction side, is also reviewed in the May 28 New York Times Book Review. The NYTBR praised Nir Baram’s A Land Without Borders, which details an insider’s journey through the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, saying “The great virtue of his book is that Baram lets his interlocutors speak for themselves...what he hears is total and irreconcilable difference.”

For the past twenty years, PRI’s To the Best of Our Knowledge has been digging into social and cultural themes with interviews, debates, stories, and science. Edward McPherson’s The History of the Future just out May 2 from Coffee House Press, operates along the line of inquiry as McPherson reexamines American places and the space between history, experience, and myth. McPherson is the perfect guest for To the Best of Our Knowledge, and tonight, May 25 at 7:00 CST, he will be interviewed for a broadcast of the show live from St. Louis. McPherson will also read from The History of the Future. The show is nationally-syndicated on 180 stations. Can’t tune in tonight? Fear not! The broadcast will air again June 11. The History of the Future is a hot title this week: the Dallas Morning News published three serialized excerpts on May 20, 21, and 22. McPherson was also spotlighted in Salon on May 9, as part of the article “Salon’s Author Questionnaire: 5 Authors Break Down the Secret Lives of their New Books.”
