We're pleased to welcome Eleanor Goodman (right), who will post over the next several weeks from London. Eleanor Goodman writes fiction, poetry, and literary criticism, and translates from Chinese. She has lived in Shanghai and Beijing, and now resides in Boston. Read Eleanor's first post here and find out more about her here.
We're also thrilled to announce that in addition to Ken Tucker's brilliant culture reporting, Larry Epstein, whom you already know for his popular Dylan Watch, will begin a new column, Larry Epstein's Culture Watch. In Larry's words, the new column will explore "neglected American cultural figures and creative efforts, the people, art, books, magazines, movies, music, performances, radio shows, and television shows that have been unf airly forgotten, underappreciated, or overlooked." He's hoping that readers will comment on his new column and offer suggestion for what forgotten person or effort ought to be included.
