Who or whom? Which or that? Jon Gingerich has helpfully assembled a list of "20 Common Grammar Mistakes That (Almost) Everyone Makes."
The second issue of the new journal Music & Literature is a feast for Krasznahorkai enthusiasts and neophytes alike, with some 70 pages of previously untranslated fiction, interviews, and essays, along with critical context on the "Hungarian Master of the Apocalypse."

This past Monday The Paris Review revealed the winners of the first annual Honey & Wax Book Collecting prize. This prize is different from the average literary prize because it focuses on celebrating women under 30 who have a passion for collecting books. The prize was created by the Brooklyn bookstore, Honey & Wax. The owners "O’Donnell and Romney had observed that although the young women who entered their store were passionate about their collections, they rarely referred to themselves as collectors. Their hope is to 'encourage young women who are actively collecting books to own and share that part of their lives, and to think strategically about the future of their collections.'” Meet the women and their incredible collections here and pair it with our post on the complete archives of The Paris Review.
