Looking at their website, it seems they don’t include author bios, let alone author photos, on the same page as a short story. They don’t even appear to link to a contributors page or anything. That’s wonderful. No wonder the site feels so quiet and bookish.
The “Art of Fiction” series is great. Just black text on a white background—the interviewee is allowed to set the tone.
- “Brief Interview #20” (or whatever you want to call it), by David Foster Wallace (1997)
- “Claim,” by Glen Pourciau
- “Why Don’t You Dance?”, by Raymond Carver
Edited January 11th, 2018 to add: I see editor Lorin Stein has resigned after apparently harassing, assaulting, and otherwise being inappropriate with various women. Good for the Review for investigating, but shameful that it went uninvestigated so long. The interim editor is Nicole Rudick.
