The Wednesday Web Browser: Extraordinary Essay, New Novel, and Festival Blog

The latest NewPages litmag reviews alerted me to an essay in Colorado Review by an MFA classmate of mine. Download Margaret MacInnis’s extraordinarily moving “Being Margaret” here.
Last week I finished reading a terrific new novel, Irina Reyn’s What Happened to Anna K.?. Read my brief comments on my other blog.
Didn’t make it to this year’s New Yorker Festival? Neither did I. But the Festival blog provides a decent sense of what we missed.

P.S. I won’t be blogging tomorrow, as I’ll be observing Yom Kippur. See you back here on Friday.
