Three UK writers (tbc) invited to perform.
- Some timely discussion of Helen Vendler at The Reading Experience
- The Complete Review analyzes Against the Day.
- Scott McLemee recalls his discovery of a letter by Thomas Pynchon.

- A Curious Singularity has pressed on to Katherine Mansfield.
- We've embarked upon the next section of chapters in Reading... The Red and the Black. (Stendhal was a pretty funny guy--never expected to grin so much while reading this one!)
