Most of my publishing news these last weeks has pertained to the appearance of the Quarantine Notebook and the serial publication of The River of the Immaculate Conception. I am pleased to announce, however, two new prose pieces, both review essays, one on the contemporary novel and Catholicism and the other on the present state of the higher education and how to save it.
Click on NR to read about "The Ghost in the House of American Fiction," and L&L to read "Academic Wrestling," my review of Michael S. Roth's Safe Enough Spaces. Both reviews have a curious element in common, their attention to the intrinsic need of cultural practices to transcend themselves and to arrive at a vision of the divine. We wouldn't be human without that.
