Vol. XXXI, #1 The Failure Issue

Review of Contemporary Fiction

An issue devoted to failure should be no issue at all. Instead, guest editor Joshua Cohen has failed at failure and assembled an unparalleled group of contributors for this specially themed issue of the Review of Contemporary Fiction. Work by Helen DeWitt, Keith Gessen, Gary Indiana, Eileen Myles, and others, alongside a first-time-in-print selection from Gilbert Sorrentino’s correspondence, address questions such as: What makes a bad book bad? Why did I get a divorce? Is the Internet a consolation or catastrophe? Should I kill myself and how? And, have we failed literature or has literature failed us?
