The Quarterly Conversation|Issue 12|Summer 2008

Junio 4, 2008
Por Mauricio Salvador

Acaba de salir el número 12 de la revista de literatura The Quarterly Conversation, dirigida por Scott Esposito, quien recientemente contribuyó con un ensayo sobre Roberto Bolaño para el número 20 de HermanoCerdo. El contenido, en serio lo digo, no podría ser mejor, una curiosa y sabia mezcla de temas y aproximaciones que van del ensayo de Marcelo Ballvé sobre Macedonio Fernández y Borges hasta un ensayo sobre Simone de Beauvoir. Si hay una revista electrónica de la que vale la pena estar al tanto, yo diría que es TCQ. Aquí copio el índice de este número:

Why I Joined the POD People
