TNR pulp

The New Republic, a heavyweight in the arena of literary criticism, introduces “Pulps,” a new series of critical reviews devoted to selections from the best-seller lists and “thrillers, romances, fiction, non-fiction, and even (as The New York Times puts it) ‘advice, how-to, and miscellaneous’ books.”

The books will be considered “as documents of our time, for the purpose of a brief but undoubtedly penetrating exercise in cultural anthropology. After all, influential ideas have a way of turning up in the strangest places.” (Via Cup of Chicha.)
