Afternoon Bites: Indie Press Economics, The Dorothy Project Interviewed, Samuel Beckett Grading Scales, and More

Danielle Dutton of The Dorothy Project is interviewed at The Paris Review. (And if you haven’t picked up the Barbara Comyns book pictured above, you really should.)

Maria Konnikova looks at the disappearance of Jonah Lehrer’s Imagine, and wonders what the implications are for books as a whole: “Does the publisher publicly—and prominently—acknowledge the error by leaving everything as it was and just removing the ability for new readers to make a purchase until the book is reissued or otherwise amended, leaving the historical record intact, so to speak? Or does the publisher pretend as if a book just never existed?”

Two Dollar Radio’s Eric Obenauf has an essay on The Billfold about economic anxiety and running a small press. You should read it.

Our own Jason Diamond looks at class, Ivy League style, and much more at The Awl.

This essay on “beta male misogyny” may well rethink the way you listen to Tullycraft. (And Ariel Pink.)
