The Adirondack Review: Winter Issue

Just in time for the holidays, a new issue of The Adirondack Review is online, and it is packed with goodies: art from Luba Lukova, poetry from Dean Kostos, translations by James Reidel, and the results of the 2009 Fulton Prize for Short Fiction. Congrats to Amber Krieger, whose short story “Among the Missing and the Dead” is this year’s winner! Also inside is an interview with Jessica Anthony, the first-ever recipient of the “Amanda Davis Highwire Fiction Award”, and whose debut novel The Convalescent is a must-read. Jessica, and two other first-time authors published by McSweeney’s Books, reads tomorrow night at 7:00 at Housing Works in NYC. Happy reading!

Update: Jonathan Lethem, whose interview with James Peacock appears in this issue of TAR, is also giving a reading at 7:00 tonight, at BookCourt in Brooklyn. How to choose?
