Introducing Issue 23
The idea for this issue started at the Housing Works Bookstore in New York City. At the one-dollar cart, where the undervalued and damaged books are put for sale, Bette Howland’s memoir, W-3, was discovered. A search for the author first led to numerous dead ends, then to her son, a cache of unpublished work, and a safe-deposit box in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with postcards and letters from a forty-year correspondence with Saul Bellow.
