New Issue of Context

Apparently Dalkey Archive is still publishing Context, just really, really slowly. Issue 24 is out now, with writing about Stig Saeterbakken and by Peter Dimock, Louis Paul Boon, and others.

By far the best feature there is the interview with John E. Woods whose translation of Zettel’s Traum will finally reach us later this year. The literary event of the century!

    Yes! The Untranslated, I think I was trying to verify what I discovered on Google Books the other day concerning the 15 September 2014 release date of the Zettels Traum translation and yr post was the only reference I found to it.

    You might also be interested to know that if you search for the ISBN 9781628971040 on Google Books, you’ll find an entry for a Dalkey Archive Press edition of Evening Edged in Gold with the same release date as Bottom’s Dream. No reference to that title as forthcoming in Context 24, but who knows?

The reissue of Evening… would be an additional boon. The original copies are pricey and hard to come by.

THE SURRENDER

The Surrender is Scott Esposito’s “collection of facts” concerning his lifelong desire to be a woman.


LADY CHATTERLEY'S BROTHER

Two long essays of 10,000 words each on sex in—and out of—literature . . .

The first essay dives in to Nicholson Baker’s “sex trilogy,” explaining just what Baker is up to here and why these books ultimately fail to be as sexy as Baker might wish.

From there the book moves on to the second essay, which explains just why Spaniard Javier Marías does right what Baker does wrong . . .


THE LATIN AMERICAN MIXTAPE

5 essays. 2 interviews.

All in all, over 25,000 words of Latin American literary goodness.

3 never-before-published essays, including “The Digression”—a 4,000-word piece on the most important digression in César Aira’s career.
