Wow, what a great roundup. You should be the editor of a huge and influential arts weekly or like. Rather than the editor of a huge and influential blog. Which you are.

Saw a picture of Verlander wearing a T-shirt saying "Let's keep the MVP in the D."

Gosh, Mike, you sure now how to charm! Thank you very much!

Also, Verlander's T-shirt has it totally right.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
