“the literary apologia”


Novelist John Reed, who wrote an excellent piece for us last year on the politics of narrative, talks with Slant about repentant book critics.

The conversation includes some kind word for our book reviews: “On the Rumpus, you can write a 3000 word review. You’re just not going to get that in print.”

Thanks, John Reed and Slant. We love you back!
