More Summer Reading From Tin House

TH72-cover-467x600In case you need a steady supply of excellent reading material, look no further than Tin House Magazine. The Summer Reading issue is just out and here’s what the editor has to say about it:

In this issue, Tracy K. Smith captures a kind of awakening, via her young daughter, in her stunning poem “Dusk.” In Carmen Machado’s story “Blur,” the protagonist sees the future clearly despite losing her glasses. In a previously untranslated story, “Pride,” by Albert Camus, God wonders “In a world where seeking is impossible and everything is known, why then have the mind?” And Alexander Chee delivers gin-inspired revelations discovered on his global search for the perfect Martini.

Here is a portion of the contents of this newest issue:

One thing Tin House and many other literary journals and magazines is now doing is offering the newer issues both in traditional journal form and also in downloadable digital form. Although I am still collecting years of Tin House Magazine on the shelves beside my bed, I have started adding the digital editions to my iPad and one day I may take the plunge and save only the digital edition in order to save space on my bookshelves.
