Now That's A Literary Career

I think Lorrie Moore is the bomb. I'm eager to read her new book. You thinks she ever suffered through rejections like we do?

I doubt it. Didn't she win a contest or something as a teenager?

Yes. Read the interview with her in Poets and Writers. And I agree. She is, in fact, the bomb.

Everyone except liars suffers through rejections like we do.

I loved Self Help. Birds of America was inconsistent, some parts good, some parts meh. A short story she had in the New Yorker recently was pretty good, and I believe it was excerpted from this new book, so I'm on the 'Lorrie Moore is the bomb' wagon for now. Plus, she's so darn cute!
