The Old School QC

Thanks to Michael Orthofer for this blast from the past. In his look back through the days of yore for various literary websites, it’s nice of Michael to include The Quarterly Conversation among the sites that have “moved up in the world.” Although it’s a little fuzzy now, I still remember those old Typepad days, as well as when I used to code each page of the site by hand in a text editor. Ahh, the memories, which reminds me, the site is due for an update one of these days . . .

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


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 . . .


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.
