Fall Quarterly Conversation

The latest edition of The Quarterly Conversation is now live, and contains multitudes. I have a review of Rick Moody's new collection of novellas, Right Livelihoods, in which I try to make the case for Moody as a good science fiction writer and a bad satirist. Garth Risk Hallberg responds to James Woods's attacks on Don DeLillo. Scott Esposito writes about two memoirs of life in prison. Ann Fernald extols the wonders of Jean Thompson's Throw Like a Girl. Brien Michael looks at two books about gender, identity, and transgenderism. Richard Crary writes about Gabriel Josipovici and Goldberg: Variations. A.J. White explores Natsume Soseki's Kokoro. And there's more.
