This issue of the review is mostly short fiction, all of it quite readable but none of it superlative. The cover feature on the Temple of Konarak is accompanied by a good essay on eroticism in Indian religion and culture and there's a very amusing poem by Gregory Corso called "Marriage." Robbe-Grillet contributes another essay on his approach to writing, the divorce of adjectives that turn things into an extension of man from simple nouns, which laid beside the fiction here provides a "weary world" full of examples of all the things he's opposed to. A fun issue but not a great one.
