Natalie Serber’s Book Makes Top 10 List

The Oregonian's top 10 Northwest books of 2012 included English faculty Natalie Serber's Shout Her Lovely Name.

Excerpt from an article by Jeff Baker on OregonLive.com,
December 9, 2012.

Portland writer Natalie Serber made a sensational debut in 2012 with her first book, Shout Her Lovely Name.

The collection of short stories was widely and universally praised, and Devan Schwartz, The Oregonian's reviewer, was among many who were impressed by the "audacious second-person collage. With embedded footnotes and pictures, Shout Her Lovely Name is formally daring. It is also the book's most psychologically affecting story, about a mother coping with her daughter's anorexia."

The Oregonian counted down its top 10 Northwest books of 2012. A new selection was revealed every day until Dec. 15, and a complete list appeared in the paper on Dec. 16, along with a list of the top 10 national books of the year.
