Got The Missouri Review yesterday. It is titled “Confessional” and has a new layout. It’s quite attractive and features such work as an excerpt from Saskia Hamilton’s forthcoming book, The Letters of Robert Lowell. I started to read these letters and was completely sucked in. I should very much like to read the book. The only other thing I’ve read so far is the Steve Almond short story (“My Mouth, Her Sex, the Night, My Heart”), which on the surface seems simplistic (horny guy almost gets laid) but is actually a layered and textured analysis of sibling relationships–how they form and break apart. The ending was kick ass.
