Desiderata: Our Favorite Films of 2013

  Emma Komlos-Hrobsky (Assistant Editor, Tin House Magazine): Joanna Arnow’s documentary I Hate Myself :) is the smartest, riskiest, and most engrossing movie I saw this year, hands down. I Hate Myself :) tracks Arnow’s relationship with her poet and “racial provocateur” boyfriend, James, to ask the central question of whether or not they should be dating. [...]

Desiderata: Tin House Author Favorites of 2013

  Matthew Spekctor, author of American Dream Machine:  Novel: I hate playing favorites, but Owen King’s Double Feature takes on the movies at once so persuasively and with such esprit. It’s hard to think of a new novel that gave me more sheer pleasure this year than this one. Short Story Collection: Karen Russell’s Vampires in the Lemon Grove, for being [...]

Desiderata: Our Favorite Poetry of 2013

“Let’s just take a sec to acknowledge that if 2013 was about anything, it was about defining, or really re-defining, the reader. Personally, I was redefined by some poems. Tony Hoagland and Mary Ruefle and Mary Szybist and Frank Bidart, in particular.”- Cheston Knapp (Managing Editor, Tin House Magazine) Veronica Martin (Columnist, The Open Bar): Soul in [...]

Desiderata: Our Favorite Nonfiction of 2013

  Heather Hartley (Paris Editor, Tin House Magazine): Deborah Levy’s Things I Don’t Want to Know: On Writing is a response to George Orwell’s 1946 essay “Why I Write,” and in her memoir, just over 100 pages, Levy combines sharp wit and a dark sense of humor along with questions about literary influence, childhood and wanderlust. [...]

Desiderata: Our Favorite Novels of 2013

  Rob Spillman (Editor, Tin House Magazine): The Flamethrowers, by Rachel Kushner.  I haven’t been as engaged and invested in a novel in a long time. The unsettling mix of art and politics that bounces between New York and Italy in the 1970s was the most satisfying reading experience of the year for me. Nanci [...]

What We’re Reading – Shirley Jackson Edition!

Jakob Vala (Graphic Designer): Shirley Jackson must have disliked taking the bus as much as I do. In her world, public transportation is the domain of fitful dreaming, uncanny companions, and hallucination. The price of a ticket may very well be one’s sanity.  In “The Bus,” which I think is one of Jackson’s most frightening tales, [...]
