Private: Nadine Gordimer, more

This month’s issue of Poets and Writers features, among other things:

Steve Almond’s reaction to a negative review his debut short story collection (My Life in Heavy Metal) received in The New York Times last year;

a conversation with Nadine Gordimer (author of My Son’s Story); and

an Amanda Davis memorial piece by Heidi Julavits. (Julavits is a writer and the co-editor of The Believer.)

I let my subscription to PW lapse a couple of years ago, but this issue looks pretty tasty.
