Weekend Reading


A new translation tries to give Mallarme’s poem it’s proper due. On a sidenote, I have a lot of respect for Wave Books, the publisher. They are what Copper Canyon press would be if it decided to take some chances.

Our own Capitol Hill Books takes center stage in this NPR piece about how people still read books.

A kinder, gentler Marquis de Sade. Sort of.

I love the little Modern Library editions from the twenties and thirties. I’ll buy a book published by them, even if I’ve never heard of it, and it’s always been edifying.
