Friends, my good friend and colleague Jeremy Schraffenberger (associate editor at the North American Review) just loaded onto our website the first "NAR Literary Roundtable Podcast." Hurray!
Listen to this conversation in which the editors of the magazine discuss the uses and abuses of the thesaurus, as prompted by poet Mark Doty; the essay "Village of Adams" by J. P. Vallieres from our recent Fall 2011 issue (cover pictured at left); and what we've all been reading lately.
Before you click on that link above to listen to the podcast, do check out the cool cover by NAR art editor Gary Kelley. If you click on the cover image at left, you'll see the cover "life-size." I think you'll enjoy Gary's comment on contemporary society here.
After you listen to the podcast or view the cover, please go to Facebook or follow us on Twitter and let us know what you think of either.
And, of course, do subscribe to the magazine at www.northamericanreview.org. And also please leave me a comment below, won't you? Ingat.
