Gangs of Brooklyn from old times, look up your neighborhood
A fine review; I'm grateful to it for having alerted me that ND has put out this collection.
Thank god the publisher New Directions stood by Levertov over the years; they're to be commended. Smart review, Mr. Lindgren, and I, for one, am grateful you quoted several lines of her poetry in it; we get a chance to judge some of her words by our own lights...
Lindgren adroitly captures the tone and complexity of Levertov's poetry at the various stages of her life. His well chosen, quoted passages highlight her power with language and images. A well-written piece that motivates me to read Levertov--peer of Stevens and Bishop!
Here's some to add to "You Might Have Missed", for the entire decade:
Books by Canadian and Australian authors (aside from the obligatory nod to authors like Atwood and Munro). American-centered lists like this should simply call it what it is: American books of the decade, with a few British and books-in-translation thrown in to make the list look international. I mean, Lunar Park, by Bret Easton Ellis? Against the Day, by Thomas Pynchon? A Gate at the Stairs, by Lorrie Moore? Are these names here because, well, they're authors who've had successes and therefor get put in because they're recognizable names?
There's nothing wrong with lists, but please call a spade a spade.
thanks for this excellent article, i got a lot of valuable information from it.

I just finished the whole book in one sitting. I LOVED it! I was laughing so hard I cried through much of it. I have to disagree with this post about the dog sections, though. Those were my favorite... Mostly because I could really relate to them. But I could relate to a lot of what she wrote about, so I highly recommend this book to everyone.
Allie's absurdly simple and quirky stick figure characters brilliantly portray the absurdity of depression itself. Allie's description of depression's grip as a child playing with her favorite toys who suddenly finds it all hollow and pointless, strikes a painful cord in me as I recall my own childhood depression and now observe that same depression in my child. Thank you, Allie, for cutting through the stigma and making mental illness more understandable and all the more human.
I own this book and I really love it! I can so relate! It is such a refreshing read and I love to reread it. Everybody should read it! It is so funny the way she make fun of life.
Spare is a terrible way to describe his prose, I think it's the polar opposite of spare, all meat, no bone....
...a great American story teller.
/The Road/ is "spare, action-describing prose sometimes interrupted with dialogue"? Really? From the NYTimes review: On the Interstate “long lines of charred and rusting cars” are “sitting in a stiff gray sludge of melted rubber. ... The incinerate corpses shrunk to the size of a child and propped on the bare springs of the seats. Ten thousand dreams ensepulchred within their crozzled hearts.” Just sayin'.
I think he does a good job of juxtaposing the love/savagery in order to fully appreciate the extremes of both, leaving one gratefull for love.
Well, if that's all you got it's only mildly violent compared to Blood Meridian, a book that's arguably the best work of 20th Century American literature.
Some of these are great books. Thanks for sharing!
So nice that Mr. Gaiman has replaced the archetypical wicked stepmother with a nanny. Sorry nannies, but you don't have as bad a rap as centuries' worth of so-called wicked stepmoms. We've tried to turn the tide and present stepmothers in a positive light in our own fairytale called My Fairy Stepmother.
