    This issue is kind of a depressing look at the current state of the world and it's problems. There are some points of optimism mixed in. Lots of great writers pop up in this issue. The three answers George Saunders gives about the future are great. The essays by Curtis White and Barry Evenson are quite good. The Thomas Frank interview I think finally answered my unasked question of why I like his writing and views so much. And the excerpt from Adam Braver's new book November 22, 1963 got me eage This issue is kind of a depressing look at the current state of the world and it's problems.

And the excerpt from Adam Braver's new book November 22, 1963 got me eager to read more of it. The Zizek piece I thought was a little humorous, but I think it's possible he is starting to become a parody of himself, and that's not cool. Sort of like when Bono became the Fly, and then went back to supposedly being Bono, but never really stopped being the Fly. Good stuff.

    This is my favorite issue of Tin House so far. Poetry by my former professor, Kevin Young is solidly in his style. The interview with Thomas Frank touched on a lot of the issues that I have been thinking about regarding conservatism in the US. Sanders' "America: A Very Brief Biography" is an excellent essay on race and poverty and foreign policy. McCormack's "The End of Democracy" is a look at how modern thinkers see the globalization issue shaking out.

McCormack's "The End of Democracy" is a look at how modern thinkers see the globalization issue shaking out. It is how I want my book club discussions to be; insightful, full of references to other works, simply stated while appreciating the complexity of the situation. A couple of good graphic novel thingies by Kerbaj (about Lebanon) and Ress (get your war on).

    This was an extremely uneven issue of Tin House, featuring a couple of really wretched essays (including one by Nick Flynn that I'll probably blog about). I loved the 'revisiting' review section but couldn't shake the feeling that, apparently, most of the authors writing for/interviewed by this journal are nothing short of self-important assholes.
