Here’s something new to my eyes. Posted this morning on Stephen Nadler’s Attempted Bloggery: a brochure for an exhibit of Addams work at the National Academy of Design in the Fall of 1991. Mr. Nadler informs us: “…in more than a quarter century since the show, no one else has posted this leaflet on the internet…so I thought I’d take the liberty.” See the entire piece here (it includes an essay by Adam Gopnik and a short intro by the exhibit’s curator, Barbara Nicholls).
Interview Of Interest: Peter Kuper
Here’s a recent interview from The Drunken Odyssey — A Podcast About The Writing Life, with Peter Kuper, who began contributing to The New Yorker in June of 2011. Mr. Kuper’s latest book, Kafkaesque: Fourteen Stories was noted in The New York Times’ New & Noteworthy column of September 18th.
