For the next three weeks we’ll be publishing reviews of books published last year and interviews with writers whose work we admire. This isn’t meant to be a “Best of” list or a comprehensive account of the year in literature; instead, we think of these reviews as a kind of narrative history of the past year as well as an introduction to our site. Among these reviews you’ll find the biggest books of the year as well as works from small and international presses and first time authors. What better way to begin than a look back?
We’ll begin covering new books and publishing essays in February. We hope you’ll keep checking back with us until then!
