I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.
Shining at the Bottom of the Sea is a new book from the author Stephen Marche. It is a groundbreaking anthology of fiction, poetry and criticism from Sanjania, an island nation in the North Atlantic. It has been described as a ‘complicated literary joke,’ but in its complexity–which really lies in the fact this novel is hard to define at face value-lies a remarkable book about a fictional place. The author joins me to take us on a little tour of a stunning, imaginative, and remarkable place. The full trip in the form of the book, can be had from Viking at the price of $32.00. His first novel Raymond and Hannah was shortlisted for the 2002 O. Henry Prize. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Stephen Marche; Good morning, Mr. Marche.
