The Anthologist

READER RECOMMENDATION

of

The Anthologist is Paul Chowder, a fellow who builds poetry anthologies in hopes of including a poem or two from his own fairly sad collection; though the soup of his life has gone sour, he tells us about it interestingly, and while he’s at it, he tells us, also interestingly, a great deal about poetry. As we come to care about him more and more, we read on, mostly delighted. By the end, we realize there’s nothing “fishy” about the guy – and that we’ll be thinking about him long after we’ve closed the book. That’s something few modern authors achieve. Bravo!

We want to hear, did we miss an angle we should have covered? Should we come back to this topic? Or just give us a rating for this story. We want to hear from you.
