The Rumpus Books Sunday Supplement


Hey, if you haven’t had the chance to take a look at all the stuff Rumpus Books has been up to lately, you should probably do that now. 

Here’s a pair of dueling reviews that didn’t work out so well: Matthew Pitt reviews Jeff Parker’s The Taste of Penny, and Jeff Parker reviews Matthew Pitt’s Attention Please Now.

Pedal Pusher — A review of Bike Snob: Systematically & Mercilessly Realigning the World of Cycling by BikeSnobNYC, a.k.a. Eben Weiss.

This is More than Poetry. — A review of The Black Automaton by Douglas Kearney.

A review of Agaat, a novel by Marlene van Niekerk.

The Poetry of Polar Exploration — A review of Approaching Ice, a collection by Elizabeth Bradfield.

The Storm of Life — A review of What We Are, a debut novel by Peter Nathaniel Malae.

Also, be sure not to miss Rob Roberge’s essay on Point of View and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Flexible First-Person, an interview with Matthew L. Moseley,  and the always excellent Antonia Crane’s interview with Bruce Benderson.

And sign up for our book club! It’s a really good deal.
