As in-depth a write-up as I’ve received, today. From the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography, a couple thousand words that are just thorough in every possible way, not to mention very positive. From the final paragraph:

And that’s why today The Slide becomes only the fourth book in CCLaP’s history (and the first this year) to earn a perfect score of 10, and why in my opinion it wouldn’t surprise me at all to see this get a dark-horse Pulitzer nomination come next year. It’s one of those books that makes you feel all funny and sad and strange afterwards, one of those books that inspires cults among 23-year-olds…What a treat this book was, a truly unexpected treat, and what an astounding future Beachy has in store for himself as an artist. I recommend jumping on the bandwagon yourself as soon as possible.
