Literary Magazine Review

Check out my review of Sonora Review's double issue, number 55 and 56, just posted at The Review Review. You'll find out about their tribute to David Foster Wallace and how the winners of their annual short short contest fare.

As I mention every couple months here on Unreliable Narrator, The Review Review hosts a siteful of great reviews of your favorite literary magazines and interviews with lit mag editors. There is also a section called Writers Speak where you can read personal reflections on the importance of lit mags by writers like Jenna Blum and Dan Chaon. If you're a writer interested in writing reviews for the site, contact Becky Tuch. She's a one-woman dynamo, the sole engineer behind this site, and she's always looking for new reviewers and essayists. Tell her an Unreliable Narrator sent you.

Dell -- I enjoyed reading your review of the "Sonora Review" and the tributes to David Foster Wallace. Interesting takes, too, on various short stories and poems. Thanks for revisiting these journals and sharing your insights.

Glad to see you back in the saddle after your mid-summer malaise. ;)

Hi Robin. Thanks for checking out the review. My mid summer malaise will hopefully turn into a late summer binge of ambition and creativity.
