Overview

IN THIS ISSUE: SAUL BELLOW reflects on writing and the life of a writer to BARBARA PROBST SOLOMON. NORMAN BIRNBAUM wryly recalls his time as a New York Yank in postwar Oxford, and LIONEL ABEL, in an essay written for THE READING ROOM just before his death, writes on Ezra Pound and Poetry with a capital P versus poetry with a small p. THE MEDITERRANEAN: its myriad voices, mysteries and eternal paradoxes are evoked in a section of AMOS OZ's new novel The Same Sea (published by Harcourt, Inc.) and in JON PAPERNICK'S tale of Jews and Arabs living in Israel. The Spanish writer FANNY RUBIO gives a freshly intense interpretation of Mary Magdalene--was she in reality Jesus's wife? NADIA BENABID translates for the first time ANGEL VAZQUEZ'S masterpiece The Vida Perra of Juanita Narboni (to be published next year by Great Marsh Press). Written in Jaketia, a combination of Spanish, Hebrew and Arabic written by the Jewish community in Tangier, Juanita Narboni is to 1950s Tangier what Molly Bloom is to Dublin. JUAN GOYTISOLO fires a blast at the corruption of the Spanish literary scene heard through Europe. THE TIMES WE LIVE IN are brilliantly evoked in the narrative writing of MICHAEL CARROLL, ALAN CHEUSE, STANLEY CROUCH, STEPHEN DIXON, ELIZABETH GAFFNEY, JUDITH ROSSNER and MIRIAM RUGEL. NEW AMERICAN VOICES include JUDITH KELLEM and INGRID LUNDY. CHARLES-LOUIS PHILIPPE'S Bubu of Montparnasse (to be published in its entirety next spring by Great Marsh Press), the favorite French modernist novel of T.S. Eliot and Anais Nin, about the world of teenaged pimps and prostitutes in Belle Epoque Paris, is amazingly contemporary in its concerns and language. POET'S CORNER: The poetry of SALLY DAWIDOFF, LISA KATZ, DON MAGGIN and Elizabeth Morse. ART PORTFOLIO: Art by the spanish artist GONZALO TORNE and drawings by Bill Anthony, inspired by Balthus, Dylan Thomas and John Gruen.
