Introducing The Straddler

A quick heads up: The first issue of The Straddler, a new quarterly online magazine, has just been launched. If the editors have their way, it will be the “anti-magazine of our day.” In the first issue, you’ll find:

  • an essay exploring the relationship between an Emily Dickinson poem, the New Testament’s Book of Matthew, the Gettysburg Address, and George Bush’s 2007 Memorial Day speech.
  • a consideration of the American gangster film in light of the American economic system;
  • a meditation on works by Anne Carson and recent Nobelist Doris Lessing; and also
  • some original artwork, poetry, and fiction.

Thanks Elaine for the heads up.
