The latest issue of The Reader (32, Winter 2008) is available to buy now.  

The Reader 32

The Reader 32 is published in honour of a very special birthday – Mr John Milton’s 400th (9th December 1608) – and to celebrate, we have some superb features in this issue, including:

An exclusive extract, reprinted with kind permission from the author, of Marilynne Robinson‘s latest novel Home; plus, there’s new poetry by Poet Laureate, Andrew Motion.

The great event of the 400th anniversary of Mr Milton’s birthday is celebrated with essays by Brian Nellist and Jane Davis.

Also in this issue is the second installment of Mary Weston‘s short novel The Junction (you can now download the first part from the downloads page on our website); Adam Phillips writes on Auden’s magic; Laura Coyne is the latest ‘Poet on Her Work’; D. H. Lawrence’s Sons and Lovers is the novel for ‘Readers Connect’; and there is much in this issue for you gumshoes out there. Our very own Blog Man, Chris Routledge, adds to his occasional Crime Spree series with a piece on Dashiell Hammett, creator of The Maltese Falcon, and American crime writer Fred Zackel (Cocaine and Blue Eyes) joins in the praise for Hammett with an essay that reads like the voiceover of a film noir.
