The Rumpus Books Sunday Supplement


This week, Rumpus Books reviewed a comic novel and a book that “straddles the line between fiction and poetry.” We also published a Rumpus Original (Supersized) Combo with Kara Candito.Plus, Stephen Elliott wrote about memoirs and we had a brilliant interview with Sasa Stanisic. It was a really, really good week.
