Emma Komlos-Hrobsky (Assistant Editor, Tin House Magazine): Ellen Bass charmed the socks off me when she read “At The Padre Hotel In Bakersfield, California” at the Writers @ Work conference in Alta, Utah. I loved its slyness and honesty, its willingness to walk right up to the real stuff of this world. I immediately bought [...]
The interns are ambitious this week: Pound’s Cantos, new graphic novels, classic sci-fi, etc.
Wordless woodcut novels, post-human apocalypses, powerful music, and the books we’re slavering for after BEA.
Swedish Punk Kids, Canadian Jazz Giants, Fat Old Orson Welles, and French New New Wave
Death, Colombia, 21st century metafiction, and the free online stories. Good week!
The interns are reading Elena Ferrante, Jonathan Lethem, Homer, Marianne Boruch, and Mei-Mei Berssenbrugge.
We check out Blake Bailey, Walter Kirn, Anthony Doerr, Giacometti via James Lord, and a bit about moms from Lydia Millet.
Culinary outliers, dad life, Aamer Hussein, Robert Lax, and The Virgin Suicides
Travel writing, time travel music, Sancerre on the patio, space aliens, new media politics, and Rip City dunks.
We’re reading, rereading and finally reading Jacques Prévert, Tom McCarthy, Charles D’Ambrosio, and Sven Birkerts.
Our amazing interns tackle big issues in their reading this week: art and faith, memory, language, peace, and comedy.
Dorthe Nors, Kevin Brockmeier, Iris Owens, Scott Spencer, and a stack of enticing books keep us reading and re-reading this week.
March has taught us about the multiverse, drama, sports, the power of food, and one more great thing about beer.
The interns (as usual) tell us what’s cool: A.M. Homes, Colin Winnette, Susanna Clarke, and Marcel Theroux.
Religions we’re not a part of, classics for babies, new short stories and old essays dominate our bedside tables this week.
Our amazing interns are hooked on Saunders, Karapanou, Tartt, de Beauvoir, Glück, Pelevin and King.
We spent January watching TV, listening to records, and drinking. Surprise.

The interns are reading Maksik, Yanagihara, Carver, Joyce, Bechdel, conversations with Robert Irwin, and, a little medieval lit, courtesy Julian of Norwich.
Foodie Memoirs, Poets’ Lost Notebooks, Glorified LiveJournals, and more
Matthew Dickman (Poetry Editor, Tin House Magazine): Nothing Was The Same by Drake. We started from the bottom now we’re here. Lauren Perez (Publicity Intern, Tin House Books): How many year end lists do you think Beyoncé‘s BEYONCÉ screwed up? All of them? It’s an amazing album. She samples Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on [...]
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. [...]
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 [...]
“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 [...]
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.
