This issue is evidence of many talents, both creative and academic. As always, here we have some of the best and most professional reviewing in the country: Joel Deshaye reviews Shy, an anthology of shy writers edited by Naomi K. Lewis and Rona Altrows; David Hollingshead reviews The Love Monster by Missy Marston, a book that he situates in the popular contemporary genre of female Bildungsroman; Laura Cameron discovers two exciting new chapbooks by Jesse Eckerlin and Katie Jordon; and Matthew Redmond uncovers Christine McNair’s study of “the interdependent roles of language and silence in our production of meaning” in her first book, Conflict. This is but a sampling of the eclectic issue with which we’re introducing old and new readers to the fourth year (!) of The Bull Calf.
As we look forward to what 2014 will bring, we also hope to hear more from you! If you are interested in reviewing for us (or having one of our reviewers review your book), please contact as at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to the The Bull Calf 4.1,
