Lit Randomness: Tao Lin's phone number, Dennis Cooper shoegaze & more

Josh Spilker

It's a 917 number. Via.

Feel free to call Tao Lin and ask if Zachary German is there. It's a 917 number. At HTML Giant.

Speaking of phone calls, here's a good anecdote about novelist David Markson, who passed away recently. At The Big Other.

Some high-faluting magazine reveals a high-faluting list of authors under 40. Most of them you probably have not heard of: At NY Times.

Dennis Cooper gives out a helpful shoegaze primer. At Dennis Cooper-The Weaklings. (via Vol 1 Brooklyn).

An awesome roundtable discussion of first-time authors. At Hobart. (via The Rumpus).

Interview with Ben Brooks, author of An Island of Fifty: Also at HTML Giant.

BROOKS: I guess I just use font size like writers use
exclamation marks or short sentences or something. Like, just do what
you will with words to achieve a desired effect. Maybe it’s the mark of a
bad writer that I have to repeatedly alter font size to get across what
I want on top of the content, or maybe not, I couldn’t tell you.
