Minor on Amelia


“The independent literary scene in the United States is as vibrant as it has ever been, and right now it is full of young writers who have written good books and might one day write a great one.”

Rumpus contributor Kyle Minor has a lot of good thoughts kicking around his positive (albeit somewhat insane) review of Amelia Gray’s Museum of the Weird.

Isaac Fitzgerald has been a firefighter, worked on a boat, and was once given a sword by a king, thereby accomplishing three out of five of his childhood goals. Formerly of The Rumpus and McSweeney’s and most recently the founding editor of BuzzFeed Books, Isaac is now the co-host of BuzzFeed News’ Twitter Morning Show, #AMtoDM. He also appears frequently on The Today Show to talk books, and is co-author of Pen & Ink: Tattoos and the Stories Behind Them and Knives & Ink: Chefs and the Stories Behind Their Tattoos (with Recipes) (winner of an IACP award), and the author of a YA novel and picture book forthcoming from Bloomsbury. He uses Twitter. More from this author →
