More July literary birthdays! July 17, 2012
The weather’s not cooling down, but neither are our celebrations of literary birthdays!
The Stray Dog Cabaret: A Book of Russian Poems, a collection of the work by those poets who made the Silver Age of Russian literature shine.
Sleepless Nights, a tour de force novel; Seduction and Betrayal, a virtuoso performance and reckoning of womanhood and writing; and The New York Stories of Elizabeth Hardwick, a collection of pieces that demonstrate how fully Hardwick deserves her place in twentieth-century great American literature. Hardwick, a co-founder and advisory editor of The New York Review of Books, was the recipient of a Gold Medal from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
The Voyage That Never Ends is a collection of the remarkable writings Lowry scattered throughout his life.
