How to Talk about Books You Have Read

Marcus, Sharon

I don't do much public writing, but each month I persuade others to do it in my role as the fiction editor in chief of Public Books, a twice- monthly online review that I cofounded with Caitlin Zaloom in 2012. On the first and fifteenth of each month, Public Books publishes six to eight essays about books, nonprint works, the media, the arts, and ideas, written mostly by academics but also by journalists, novelists, activists, and artists. In addition to traditional reviews, we publish roundtables, interviews, visual essays, and Public Picks, our annual lists of best books and films.
