It's no small thing to have your book reviewed in The Times Literary Supplement.
Alongside a book by Steven Barthelme.
Except Mark's new book of stories, The Incurables, gets, oh, several paragraphs of the review and Barthelme's gets, well, a lot less.
Because, as you probably know, Mark's book is pretty great; after all, it's not every collection that "deserves a lasting place among regional story cycles."
Yep. That's what the review says.
Sounds good to us.
