Weekend Rumpus Roundup


It wasn’t a very essay-heavy weekend here at The Rumpus, but we still published all kinds of good stuff. Check it out:

Amy Cheney, who has worked as a librarian in a detention center for the past 12 years, recommends three must-reads for those “who live on or are interested in the margins and the marginalized.”

Jason Skipper interviews Lauren Groff about her new novel Arcadia, creating her own utopia, and why nostalgia can be dangerous.

And Marissa Landrigan gives us a powerhouse essay, where she passionately defends the use of the female body as a site of protest.

Also be sure to read our latest Sunday Serialization, featuring new poetry by David Hernandez, and feast your eyes on new “All Over Coffee” and “Horn! Reviews.”
