August 2009 in Open Letters!
It's 1 August people, and you know what that means! Yes indeed, it's another cram-packed issue of Open Letters Monthly! This time around, we've got great articles on boxing, the whole Christopher Hitchens/Richard Dawkins "God Debates," a posy of contemporary fiction, our crack sleuth Irma Heldman holding court on the perils of Brooklyn, our gaming savant Phillip Lobo writing about The Sims, our movie maven Sarah Hudson firing a warning shot across Oscar's bow, our zombie queen Deirdre Crimmins writing about really angry people who aren't bloggers, and Brad Jones writing about the Hollywood magic of Vincente Minnelli. I do my duty by the Romans and the Tudors, and we've got new poem and an eye-opening cover photo. And of course you all already know that Open Letters is very active all month long - especially on the OLM blog, where you'll find lots of fascinating stuff, including quite a few book-reviews by yours truly that you won't find here at Stevereads. So click on over there and read to your heart's content! You'll be glad you did!
