October had tremendous possibility. The summer’s oppressive heat was a distant memory, and the golden leaves promised a world full of beautiful adventures. They made me believe in miracles. ~Sarah Guillory, Reclaimed I welcome October with open arms.…

Had I ever felt the fatality of autumn like my bones did now, while I watched the pensive currents of foot traffic? What Jay McInerney’s book, Big Lights, Big City, did to describe the 80s, is what Stephanie Danler’s book, Sweetbitter, does for the…

Behold this book, Captivity, winner of the Aegon Literary Award, translated from Hungarian, and coming in at a mere 864 pages, it is not for the “subway reader.” In fact, that term was brought to my attention by Vishy on Facebook tonight, who highlighted…
