Cambridge Literary Review #10

Much like the extended family of Eminem in the late nineties, this blog is finally ready to acknowledge its close ties to issue 10 of the CLR, now that it has garnered universal acclaim. A very prestigious poet has said that it is a great literary magazine (can’t say which). A very prestigious bookshop has said that it is the greatest literary magazine (can’t say which).

It has (deep breath) Susan Howe, Eileen Myles, Nate Mackey, Peter Gizzi, Vahni Capildeo, Drew Milne, Eley Williams, Raymond Guess, Robert Kiely, Cole Swensen, Alex Houen, Stephen Rodefer, Ken Cockburn & Alex Finlay, Jesse Drury, J. H. Prynne, Hanna Brooks-Motl, Amy Bowles, David Larsen, Luke Roberts, Rowan Evans, Tala Jarjour, Jocelyn Paul Betts, Mika Seifert and John Saul (no particular order). I guess it was always destined for greatness with that line up.

We’re planning to release some wonderful material that, though it deserved to be included, we just couldn’t fit into the issue and some intriguing extracts on this website over the coming weeks.

If you haven’t got your copy of issue 10 yet, ask yourself ‘What am I waiting for? Dr. Dre’s remix?’
