NPR’s Weekend Edition Sings Olio’s Praises; City Mouse to Be Highlighted in First For Women

Weaving together sonnet, song, and narrative based on pre- and post-Civil War texts, Tyehimba Jess’s 256-page Pulitzer Prize-winning Olio is nothing short of a masterpiece. NPR’s Weekend Edition caught up with Jess on July 15 to discuss the process behind writing Olio and the African American history he hopes to pay homage to. Scenes in Olio were based on actual texts from minstrel shows, and Jess told Weekend Edition’s Scott Simon how he hoped to turn those minstrel tropes into truths about the real-life performers. “Characters have depth. They have multiple dimensions, right? A caricature, you only show one side of a person. They're oafish. Or they're silly. Or they're dumb, etcetera. A character, you see multiple sides of their humanity.”

Having already made appearances in both Star and OK! Magazines, Stacey Lender’s City Mouse has proved its worth as a title to watch. Smart and hilarious, City Mouse is a novel packed with all the juicy gossip and scandal of life in the suburbs, revealing uncomfortable truths about motherhood, marriage, and American materialism along the way. Now, he book will be highlighted in the September 7 issue of First for Women magazine, which has a circulation of 900,000. In Star magazine’s May 29 issue, City Mouse was included in a round-up of top entertainment selections, and OK! Magazine highlighted the title in a “Book Preview” in the June 5 issue. A review in the New York Post published on June 4 called the title “a hilarious book about the city vs. suburbs divide.”
