Jaimy Gordon is wild - maybe a bit like a thinner more Jewish more urban... female Jim Harrison? Her most recent novel LORD OF MISRULE won the National Book Award in the U.S in 2010 and was recently longlisted for the Orange Prize here. I hope UK readers - anyone who likes Sterne, Kathy Acker, John Barth, TC Boyle, Cynthia Ozick - or indeed Harrison - or indeed horses - should find out about her. She's a very wonderful TECHNICIAN and I've interviewed her here.
