Editor's Note

We’ve got some of Tierney’s paper dolls such as Pocahontas and Gertrude Stein for you to dress and undress. There’s also David Shields’s meta-essay on the profundity of Bill Murray (with, naturally, an original Bill Murray paper doll). And, our own Jeanne McCulloch sits down with Nancy Milford, author of the long-awaited scandalous biography of Edna St. Vincent Millay (and no, sadly, there is no Jeanne McCulloch paper doll… yet. Though TH staff paper dolls would undoubtedly make nice dart practice for other magazines). We count ourselves lucky to also be able to offer you “Charity,” by great America craftsman Richard Ford. In addition, Mary Gaitskill goes primal in “A Bestial Noise,” and Jim Shepard melds history and fiction in “Alicia and Emmett with the 17th Lancers at Balaclava.” In the realm of poetry, we go Nobel laureate on Nobel laureate with a meditation by Czeslaw Milosz on the late Joseph Brodsky, and wonderful (if we do say so ourselves) new work from Nick Flynn, Marge Piercy, Judith Hall, and Tom Sleigh.
