On my reading list…

Reviewed in The New York Times Book Review on July 17, 2011, Maggie Nelson’s THE ART OF CRUELTY:  A RECKONING

Laura Kipnis’s comments have me awaiting arrival of the text.  It looks to be a thought-provoking exploration about authors’/other artists’ uses of violence and various attitudes about those uses.  A conversation starter, for sure, and a chance for writers to consider who/what/when/how we inflict purposeful pain in our own work.
