Rumpus Books Sunday Supplement


This week, Rumpus books published pieces about fucking and writing, A Common Pornography, and Folksy Fruit. Also, there was an interview with Jonathan Lethem. Is there really a better way to spend your Sunday than catching up with Rumpus books?

“Perhaps we should talk about fucking. Fucking and writing, fucking and talking, fucking and thinking, fucking and whatever else it is that fucking goes with…”” — from Fucking and Writing: The Rumpus Conversation with Jami Attenberg.

The Divot — A review of A Common Pornography by Kevin Sampsell in the style of A Common Pornography by Kevin Sampsell.

The last book that Patrick Burns loved was In The Woods by Tana French.

Folksy Fruits. I’m not gonna explain. You’ll just have to look for yourself.

And last but certainly not least, be sure not to miss the Rumpus Long Interview with Jonathan Lethem.
