Literature online: Lorrie Moore, Irina Reyn and more
The Guardian has posted "Foes" by Lorrie Moore; it's a political(-ish) story published just in time for our election.
Today Five Chapters begins a story by Irina Reyn, author of "What Happened to Anna K." As usual, the story will be published in five parts, continuing each day this week.
In A Public Space, Keith Lee Morris writes about returning to his hometown to celebrate the release of his novel "The Dart League King." That town -- Sandpoint, Idaho, current population 6,835 -- also spawned Marilynne Robinson and Sarah Palin.
At the Kenyon Review, Fady Joudah's remembrance of Mahmoud Darwish -- tucked between a few of Darwish's poems -- is appropriately poetic. Joudah, who works with Doctors without Borders, was a translator and friend of Darwish.
