In This Issue

In this week's issue, you'll find reviews of Kevin Powell's Grocery Shopping with My Mother, 36 "smooth poems with a distinctive voice" that mingle "the personal and the political, the praiseworthy and the reprehensible"; Kenneth C. Davis's "delightfully accessible" Great Short Books, 58 fact-filled reviews of "a smorgasbord of titles sure to entice readers"; and Just Jerry, the "resplendent and candid" memoir that Caldecott Medalist Jerry Pinkney was working on during the decade before he died. And so many more!

In The Writer's Life, poet, novelist and journalist Eileen Myles discusses Pathetic Literature, an anthology they edited of 106 pieces, ranging from poetry to prose, including lesser-known works by the likes of Rumi, Kafka and Gwendolyn Brooks--plus the book that saved her life.
