Editor's Note

“Write naked. Write in exile. Write in blood.” Thus spaketh Denis Johnson at our first Tin House Summer Writer’s Workshop this past July. Despite all of this summer’s madness, we have just published, with Bloomsbury, our third and fourth books: Steven Carter’s hilarious novel I Was Howard Hughes and Olena Kalytiak Davis’s spectacular poetry collection shattered sonnets love cards and other off and back handed importunities. Oh, yes…we almost forgot—the magazine. Katie Roiphe’s brilliant pilgrimage through Graham Greene’s Vietnam casts a contemporary light on sexual bartering in the shadows of violence and poverty. James Salter is sure to surprise many with his expertly faceted gem of a story, “Give.” And Tracy Kidder, the author of The Soul of the New Machine, gives a timely interview about political engagement and making a difference in the world.
