So Long, Jessa Crispin

The Bookslut herself is leaving Chicago. She emailed us reviewers about it a few days ago, but now it’s official.

Jessa’s headed for Berlin, not just for a vacation, but indefinitely. Bookslut will live on in the trusted hands of Caroline Eick, and Jessa will continue to blog once she’s settled. But it’s still a sad day for Chicago, as we lose one of our finest.
Jessa recently started a twitter feed, if you’re into that kind of thing. I’m currently reviewing a couple books for her (or rather, for Caroline): Max Frei’s The Stranger (which has taken me two months to finish, due to its length) a gritty, witty Harry Potter for adults, and Jeffrey Ford’s Well-Built City trilogy, which is surreal and fascinating.
