John Benditt in conversation with Nancy Pearl - University Bookstore Wednesday, February 25th, 7:00pm
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.
Munro on a ferry, McCarthy on the beach, and Seb Emina at the breakfast table.
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. […]
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 […]
Pamela Moore, Matthea Harvey, Anton Chekhov, and August Kleinzahler
Paige Williams, Thornton Dial, Georges Simenon, and Irmgard Keun have our attention.
Deborah Eisenberg, Victoria Finlay, and Jon Krakauer carry us into the holiday.
Diana Arterian, Jennifer Boyden, Gary Lutz, and more.
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, […]

Emma Komlos-Hrobsky (Assistant Editor, Tin House Magazine): I’ve been reading Something Childish But Very Natural, a collection of Katherine Mansfield’s short writings lead by the story of the same name. “Something Childish…” is a weird little impressionistic gem of a story, much more complex than its giddy true-love-at-first-sight opening would have you think. When teenaged Edna […]
Tony Perez (Editor, Tin House Books): It’s September, so literary agents are back from their Châteauneuf-du-Pape binges in St. Tropez, the kind of large living that 15% of a quiet, literary novel enables (I’m from Portland: is my New York Publishing Worldview accurate?). This means the manuscripts are piling up again, and my pleasure-reading time resembles the sleep […]
