Shelf-Help is offering stories ‘for here’ and ‘to-go’ this month (NYLON April 12).
Snail mail nostalgia, an awesome online indie bookstore, and new fiction from Heidi Julavits, Adam Levin, and Amelia Gray. (March 12 NYLON)
I wonder how many people have cradled a Peter Mendelsund-designed book in their arms like a beautiful baby. (NYLON February 12)
This is the last Shelf-Help of the year! We’re going out in a blaze of crippling loss, sexual torture, strange political figures, and a very nice reading list by Megan Boyle.
Susan Orlean is the first writer a professor ever personally recommended to me. Special place in my heart. Shelf-Help (NYLON Oct 11)
For a while, I had Vanna Speaks strategically placed on my desk so that anyone who walked by would have to ask me about it. It’s actually a really good-looking cover, imo. (NYLON Sept 11)
Shelf-Help (NYLON Aug 11)
This book, Please Read, Jill Abramson’s promotion at The New York Times, that Beyonce song, Thessaly’s zine—seems to me like there has never been a chiller time to be a girl than this summer. Click the image to read. (NYLON August 11)
The books page took a little hiatus in May, but we did get some reader mail shout-outs, so there’s something! This is Shelf-Help from the new summer issue.
There Is No Caption This Month. Because I can’t think of one and I’m sleepy today. There is, however, Blake Butler reading from his new novel in the iPad edition. Download it or I’ll break something!
If you are a PWAI (person with an iPad), please download the March issue to hear Emma Straub read from one of her stories. Also, on the Culture Club page, there is even more (video) fun with Petra Cortright and an additional feature on Electric Lit’s awesome new project, Broadcastr. Livin in a digital world y’all.
