Paper Dreams: Writers and Editors on the American Literary Magazine (Atticus Books, August 13, 2013)

Paper Dreams Cover

“[A] history and a how-to that illuminates the influence, delights, problems, and engaging idiosyncrasies of these important magazines in American literary culture.” –Publishers Weekly

Paper Dreams…gathers choice essays, interviews, commentary, and manifestos that carve a landscape of vital voices and explore relationships between editors, writers, readers, and imagined communities.” –ForeWord Review

“The literary magazine has endured a century of change: from the need to advertise and have serious financial backing to succeed, to the conflict of defining serious fiction, to the ironies of publishing in print versus online. But it has endured. The progression shows that the conversation isn’t over yet. Travis Kurowski’s work succeeds in bringing the past, the present, and the future of the literary magazine together in such a manner in which readers and writers alike will remember the purpose of all of this in the first place.” –The Summerset Review

“Quite simply, this book is a goldmine.” –Erika Dreifus, author of Quiet Americans

“The wonderful world of literary magazines just got more wonderful.” –The Review Review
