Best of Chicago Lit

The latest issue of Chicago Magazine gives some love to local writers. Not only do they do a nice little write-up of Marcus Sakey, author of the recently published The Amateurs, they also name Nami Mun, author of Miles from Nowhere, as Best New Novelist and Sara Paretsky, author of our March 2008 selection Fire Sale, as Best Mystery Writer.

Not to be outdone, the U of C Press toots their own horn (not that there's anything wrong with that...horns are good) and points to some of their authors and publications that have recently been mentioned in the news.
