After several years of lamenting slow death throes of book coverage in The Stranger and thinking the day’s of Matthew Stadler’s and Traci Vogel’s books section would remain locked in nostalgia, memories of a time when I had to write “19” before the year, this week sees what I hope is a prolonged move toward making the best of two tabloid sized pages. Christopher Frizzelle’s book column this week was actually a close approximation of a thee dot column with news. Hey, Clear Cut Press isn’t dead. That’s good news. Miranda July is coming to Seattle. There were four very short reviews and a one longer (but small) review. After years of starvation in alt-press books coverage in Seattle this seems like a feast. I’m actually looking forward to next weeks issue already.
