The Rumpus Books Sunday Supplement


In my (wow, it’s already been almost a) year here as Sunday editor at The Rumpus, I’ve never seen a week with so much incredible content. If you missed it, come take a peek.

Sexually, I’m More of a Denmark: A Highly Subjective Book Review — A review of Sexually, I’m More of a Switzerland: More Personal Ads from the London Review of Books, edited by David Rose.

Vanity Fair — A review of For You, For You I Am Trilling These Songs, a book of essays by Kathleen Rooney.

A review of Anywhere But L.A., a book of short stories by Daniel Olivas.

Slouching Towards Baltimore — A review of Hot Springs, a novel by Geoffrey Becker.

A review of The Rising of the Ashes, a book of poems by Tahar Ben Jelloun.

Also, be sure not to miss the brilliant essay Punk Rock Literati: Wells Tower and Hellbender and interviews with David Shields and Gary Young.
