Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Tin House is an invaluable repository of fine American writing and American fiction, presented in a crisp and entertaining visual format." -- Stephen King

"Tin House is a human habitat, an abode for the bodacious, an apartment for the artful, a bullpen for writers, a castle, a cave. It's a commorancy for birds of a feather, a condo for the uncommon, a crash pad for the dark night of the soul. It's a cubbyhole stuffed with language- our digs, our domicile, our glorious word dump- a dwelling for the light inside us. It's a flat, a flophouse, a hole in the wall, a joint, a lean-to, a mansion, a pad, a shack made of words, doors and windows flung open, a tin-rooved shanty on a island of desire." --Dorianne Laux

"When you crave fiction that's crafted with daring and passion and precision, when you get that pit-of-the-stomach hunger for a knockout story, Tin House is the only place to turn. -- Adam Johnson

"Tin House magazine is a port in the storm for people who love language. It is unfailingly excellent, and committed to publishing new voices in addition to delivering freaky-fresh work from established writers." --Karen Russell

"As everything goes increasingly haywire in our politics and in our world, we stand in ever-increasing need of the emotional and ethical education that great literary magazines can provide. And in what other forum than TIN HOUSE can you find William Gass, Steven Millhauser, Karen Russell and Stuart Dybek -- or Anne Carson, Alice Munro, Amy Hempel, and Sherman Alexie -- all in the same issue? And combined with essays on Raymond Chandler, or Fat City, or trauma? With each issue you finish, you’re more awake, erudite, socially aware, and alert to exciting new writers. What more do you want between two covers, anyway?" --Jim Shepard
