If you’re in the Bay Area tonight, go see Matthew Specktor in conversation with Glen David Gold at the Lone Palm. 7:00 pm, hosted by LitQuake.
Matt Bell’s visionary debut novel In the House Upon the Dirt Between the Lake and Woods is one of the most singularly strange and beautiful and wondrous books to come along in a long time. I picked it up one afternoon just to read the opening paragraph— “Before our first encounter with the bear I [...]
Ben Schrank’s latest work, Love Is a Canoe, centers around the idea of marriage but it is also about desire and ambition and what grows when these things are absent. I find Schrank to be a confident, intelligent writer, who seems to know his characters well, always revealing a truth at precisely the right moment in the [...]
It’s the Disregard of the Natural Landscape that Proves Man’s Intelligence: An Interview with Ken Kalfus
Historical fiction, we’re told, always says more about the era in which it’s written than that in which it’s set. Yeah, yeah. Set in Egypt in the waning years of the nineteenth century, Ken Kalfus’s glimmering new novel Equilateral takes a different approach in that it isn’t content to only offer commentary on who we [...]
Write what you don’t know yet.
This is the third installment of Marcia DeSanctis’s series on three of Russia’s most influental 20th-century writers—Joseph Brodsky, Vladimir Voinovich, and Yuz Aleshkovsky. Joseph Brodsky admired Yuz Aleshkovsky greatly and made an introduction for me. His book Kangaroo, which had just been published by Ardis in the US, was by far my favorite book of 1987 [...]
This is the second installment of Marcia DeSanctis’s series on three of Russia’s most influental 20th-century writers- Joseph Brodsky, Vladimir Voinovich, and Yuz Aleshkovsky. You can read her first disptach here. Vladimir Voinovich — Silenced in 1974 in the USSR and forced to emigrate in 1980. I met Voinovich when he visited the Department of Slavic [...]
In 1986, I was a fledgling researcher at ABC News, and had all but ditched my Russian literature obsession of the last several years. The shelves in my sunless rental on West 73rd Street heaved with the volumes that had nursed me through four years of college. The weathered text of Bely’s Petersburg sat aside [...]

“Literature brings us to an acknowledgment of situations which I think that legal reports, media reports simply don’t do. This has really reinforced my impression that we need to engage on a literary level with these tragedies.”

Véronique Olmi’s Beside The Sea has been garnering praise and best-seller credentials in Europe for over a decade, but—until today—it’s been unavailable in the States. We’re thrilled, at long last, to introduce American readers to this novel.
A conversation with Sheila Heti
“If you’ve ever tried to catch a train at rush hour in Grand Central or any sort of big transportation hub, or try to go shopping at Whole Foods at 6pm on a weekend, you are in a zombie world for a few minutes, in the blind mob after their grubby ends.”
Tin House’s very own kiosk launched today.
A conversation with Jon Raymond
Portland feels like a city barely carved from a forest that could at any second reclaim it.
The internet, even more than the library, is a foodless, drinkless paragon of the Naked Lunch—in Burroughs’ words, “a frozen moment when everyone sees what is on the end of every fork.”
“The best kind of museum is where you’re free to experience the art because the museum is experiencing it as well.”
