One of the better issues in recent memory. The short stories are excellent and worthy of 5 stars. As usual, the poetry drags the overall down but is still better than the recent average.

All stories good. The poems variegated. Horticultural, in a way. The essay was sensible and the interviews illuminating. James Agee is always a nice touch.

I subscribed to Lapham’s Quarterly. I learned about New Journalism. About Thomas Wolfe and Gay Tolese. I noted two or three writers whose books I will buy, one day read. This years summer issue has been influential if nothing else.
