This week, The Rumpus reviews a biography of John Dillinger, C.D. Wright’s new book of lyric poems, a memoir by a critic for The Onion, a book of short stories, and a book of debut poems by Paul Otremba. Also, don’t miss a great essay on devils and two new entries in the “Last Book I Loved” series. Phew.
