At the Story Prize blog, Elena Georgiou, author of The Immigrant's Refrigerator (GenPop Books 2018), offers advice to "Not-So-Young Writers."
Sinister Wisdom features a brilliant review of Elena Georgiou's The Immigrant's Refrigerator (GenPop Books, 2018): "a multiply-voiced chorus spanning experiences of political upheaval, violence, sex work, death, scholarship, bread-baking, spirituality, physical and psychic hunger."
“Writing The Immigrant's Refrigerator taught me the following things," Elena Georgiou tells Bustle. "Borders change. Countries appear and disappear. Walls go up. Walls come down. Wars begin. Wars end. These are the things that divide us. And the things that unite us.”
The book prize was judged by Helon Habila, Madeleine Thien, and Maaza Mengiste. Georgiou will attend an award ceremony on October 11 at George Mason University.

At Poet's Quarterly, Edan Mohr reviews Judith Baumel's The Kangaroo Girl, (GenPop Books) which Mohr calls "a book of rare power and beauty, a look back what survives in memory and how time itself transforms and sustains us."
Amber Sparks at Vouched Books reviews Julianna Spallholz's fiction debut, The State Of Kansas (GenPop Books, 2012). Being fans of Sparks's own fiction, it's something of a double honor for all of us here at GenPop. "If Lydia Davis knew more people who hung out shirtless in small places and owned pitbulls instead of pedigreed cats, her stories might look at little like Julianna Spallholz’s," writes Sparks. "Lucky for us, we’ve already got Julianna Spallholz to write those stories."
