Review of Contemporary Fiction Spring 2011

A non fiction book by

The Review of Contemporary Fiction was founded in 1981 to promote a vision of literary culture that is not limited to the immediately popular, and to ensure that important world writers outside popular attention continue to be written about and discussed.

An issue devoted to failure should be no issue at all. Instead, guest editor Joshua Cohen has failed at failure and assembled an unparalleled group of contributors for this specially themed issue of the Review of Contemporary Fiction. Original work by Helen DeWitt, Keith Gessen, Gary Indiana, Eileen Myles, and others, alongside a first-time-in-print selection from Gilbert Sorrentino's correspondence, address questions such as: What makes a bad book bad? Why did I get a divorce? Is the Internet a consolation or catastrophe? Should I kill myself and how? And, have we failed literature or has literature failed us?
