Win Stuff at Critical Mass

Through next week, Critical Mass is offering free copies of the Paris Review Interviews books. I’ve been picking my way through Vol. III, and it’s a fun trip. So, take a shot at the contest:

For the next week or so, Critical Mass will publish excerpts from interviews with former National Book Critics Circle award winners and finalists included in the venerable Paris Review "Writers at Work" series; the third volume has just been published by Picador. The reader who first correctly identifies the author each day will be rewarded with a complete three-volume set of the collected Paris Review interviews. Send your answers to nationalbookcritics@gmail.com. Please put "Name that Author" in the subject header.

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.
