The Paris Review Interviews, Vol. I

| Print |

Tuesday, 14 November 2006 17:00

There’s opinion, ego, wit, insight, personality, history, and, as any Paris Review reader would expect, page after page about the craft of writing itself.

 

 

Donald Hall | White Apples and the Taste of Stone

| Print |

Thursday, 09 November 2006 15:13

A few of Hall’s poems run along the warm and fuzzy side of things, but there are also pieces that are distressing.

 

   

Cynthia Ozick | The Din in the Head

| Print |

Thursday, 09 November 2006 14:37

Reading through her essays is like living with each subject and learning some of the smallest bits of detail—or something bigger—but feeling like you were there, watching each event, or idea unfold into an extraordinary piece of art. 

 

 

Gary Shteyngart | Absurdistan

| Print |

Written by Anne Valente Thursday, 28 September 2006 17:00

Under siege are notions of race, religion, commercialism, philanthropy, American excess, and even psychiatry.

 

   

Jeff Hoke | The Museum of Lost Wonder

| Print |

Written by Byron Kerman Tuesday, 26 September 2006 11:29

Hoke disdains hundred-page musings on theorems for the simpler pleasures of cut-and-fold cardboard models.

 

 

Phillip Lopate (ed.) | American Movie Critics: An Anthology From the Silents Until Now

| Print |

Written by Shandy Casteel Tuesday, 26 September 2006 11:27

Lopate has again succeeded in weeding through an insurmountable amount of work to put together a collection certain to become the yardstick by which future anthologies are measured.

 

   

From Neverland to No Man's Land: Lost Girls

| Print |

Written by Bryan A. Hollerbach Monday, 28 August 2006 04:51

Almost assuredly, it shan't snuggle beside Hustler at newsstands and booksellers nationwide, especially given its cover price of $75.

 

 

Daniel Woodrell | Winter's Bone

| Print |

Monday, 14 August 2006 02:21

When her meth-addicted father skips bail, Ree Dolly's got no choice but to track him down, dead or alive, or the family’s house will be snatched right out from other them.
   

Nick Mamatas | Move Under Ground

| Print |

Monday, 14 August 2006 02:17

The whole book is heat and flash and freaky hallucination, with little in the way of explanation.

 

 

Kalle Lasn | Design Anarchy

| Print |

Monday, 14 August 2006 02:13

As a manifesto of uncooling and demarketing, Design Anarchy is high-octane ammo, an attempt to recapture a little of what was going on in Paris in the late ’60s and what the Situationists had been hoping for: an end to the solemn existence of modern man, and more joyful displays of spontaneity.

 

   

Rich Balling (ed.) | Revolution On Canvas, Volume One: Poetry From The Indie Music Scene

| Print |

Monday, 14 August 2006 02:06

The only consistency the book manages is the sophomoric nature of the writing, which wants so badly to tap into the poetic ethos that even its attempted earnestness smacks of tiresome literary posing.

 

 

Tom Reynolds: I Hate Myself and Want to Die (Hyperion; 271 pgs; $12.95)

| Print |

Written by Laura Hamlett Friday, 07 July 2006 07:25

52 depressing songs is about 50 too many to hold my interest.
