New QC

The newest, latest Quarterly Conversation is up with some great essays and reviews. Among the highlights, a discussion of Bernhard— one writer I feel everyone ought to read— a review of a fascinating looking book on Latin American dictators, and reviews of The Ecco Anthology I assisted with, which, as the author notes, is far from perfect (way too many poems by Milosz) but, nevertheless, is a killer book (by the way, WWB has a new anthology out of Middle Eastern lit that is next on my list, thank you Cassandra), and this review of Zukofsky that cements my decision to never read his sprawling opus.

C’mon get happy!
