Summer is here!

And so is the Summer issue of the Quarterly Conversation!

My review this time is of a new translation of Ovid's Amores and Heroides from Harvard (from which I've quoted extensively over at the Annex already). Other highlights include Patrick Kurp on Adam Zagajewski, Andy Frazee on Alberto Mobilio's new book, and Erica Mena on the monster FSG Book of Twentieth-Century Latin American Poetry.

Oh, and a collection of takes on the question "Who was David Foster Wallace?", the answers to which range through all of his published works, from his masterpiece, Infinite Jest, to his story collections to the new, unfinished The Pale King. It's an impressive lineup of writers, and the results vary interestingly in their tone and approach to the question.

Let your work slide, folks--there's reading to do!
