Read Lynne Tillman’s Love Sentence!

Because Richard Nash has decided to embrace social media, you can now read Lynne Tillman’s new collection of stories, Someday This Will Be Funny free online. (Free version here, print version at Amazon here.)

But at the very least, you should all take 20 minutes and read “Love Sentence,” which may well be my favorite story out of the collection. It’s a beautiful little meditation on appropriation, the limits of language, and, yes love.

And it quotes Derrida saying this:

I can love the other only in the passion of this aphorism.

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.
