The Constant Conversation

Francisco Goldman’s Say Her Name

Francisco Goldman is an unlikely Hades. Other than the cartoonish arch of his black eyebrows and his swarthy overall appearance, he is more Pan than underworld overlord. He is quick to laugh and does so with abandon; he has an infectious appreciation for beauty and eccentricity, is prone to exuberance, flights of fancy.

Mr. Stein drops knowledge

Mr. Lorin Stein making a direct link between the decline of independent booksellers and the falling number of so-called "midlist" literary authors.

Paris Review interview with Anne Carson

We’re big Anne Carson fans around here, so I’d be remiss not to point out that she’s interviewed in the newest Paris Review. This exchange, about a line from Carson’s poem “Stanzas, Sexes, Seductions,” is both interesting–I love Carson’s description of the way the line came to her–and amusing: INTERVIEWER The other line, the one I persist in [...]

The National Humanities Medal, or, the New York Times misses a trick

Yesterday, the Times’s Arts Beat blog featured a post titled “Roth and Oates to receive National Humanities Medals.” Which led me to ask: Where’s Hall? Today, I learned, from an amazing photo on the National Journal Tumblr, that Hall was right there the whole time! Poet Donald Hall, that is. Oh, and the Oates was Joyce Carol. Still, [...]

Why Shop Indie?

"No one should shop at Green Apple out of charity or pity or noblesse oblige, but because you want what we've got. You mold the retail landscape with every purchase; vote wisely."

A little love for Melville House covers

I make a point of encouraging my friends to get their books from me, to consider me their personal bookseller, and to send me e-mails, text messages, or smoke signals whenever they need a book. I like it. It's still very personal, it's reasonably reliable, and it really does strike me as a great marriage of modern convenience and old fashioned bookselling.

“Nothing genuine in a poem, or so I have learned the hard way, can be willed,” or, Charles Simic on sources of inspiration

Over at the New York Review of Books blog, Charles Simic has written a wandering, endearing post about where poets get their ideas, the way those ideas transform in the process of writing, and the “uncertain and often exasperating” work of writing a poem. The post is full of wonderful lines–the sort of aphoristic observations [...]

Mister K meets Mister M

Peter Mendelsund, one of the industry's top designers (and, honestly, one of my favorites) explains the hideous choices he made when redesigning Kafka for Schocken. On the plus side, there's the gorgeous typography by Julia Sysmäläine developed from Kafka's own handwriting (!) and the brilliant Knopf/Arendt story for industry nerds. Enjoy.

“This poetry is not an ornament to the uprising—it is its soundtrack and also composes a significant part of the action itself.”

At Jadilayya, Elliott Colla has published an interesting and informative piece about the role of poetry–slogans and more–in the current protests in Egypt, as well as in earlier protests and revolutions in Egyptian history. Colla writes of a feeling that will be familiar to anyone who’s been part of a demonstration, however small or inconsequential [...]

Congratulations to Peter Cole

Gabriel Josipovici hailed Cole’s work as a “treasure trove, a labour of love and exceptional erudition, which will open up . . . a world of poetry and culture as rich as anything in human civilization”.
