In addition to TLG's review of Horseshoe Crabs and Velvet Worms, be sure to check out more from the critics in this week's collected reviews:
Samantha Mabry's debut novel A Fierce and Subtle Poison, which Caitlyn Paxson calls "impressive."
Bucky F*cking Dent, by David Duchovny (yes, that David Duchovny) which is a "home run" according to Jeff Ayers.
Ian McGuire's The North Water which, if Colm Toibin is to be believed, is apparently a modern work of naturalistic genius. He describes it as a "riveting and darkly brilliant [novel that] feels like the result of an encounter between Joseph Conrad and Cormac McCarthy."
