Bookshelves + selfies = bookshelfies!
That’s the simple and delightful concept behind the Bookshelfies Tumblr started by our very own Isaac Fitzgerald along with Believer editor Max Fenton.

This is somewhat of a relief after Tuesday night, when a coalition of Bay Area police used tear gas, nonlethal rounds, and more in Oakland, critically injuring 24 year-old veteran Scott Olsen by shooting him in the face with a projectile and then throwing a flash grenade at the people trying to help him....more

One of the first times I had a real conversation with Isaac Fitzgerald was a couple of years ago at Mission Creek Café on Valencia Street in San Francisco. It was a Rumpus volunteer meeting—the site had no employees at that point—and he was trying to convince me to edit a massive transcript he was supposed to be sculpting into a zippy little interview for editor-in-chief Stephen Elliott....more

As a teenager, Hally McGehean was the most glamorous person I knew. When I was 17 I was in love with her. Not a serious love. The kind of love a 17-year-old boy has for a woman in her twenties who wears cowboy boots and sundresses that reveal the freckles on the tops of her breasts....more
