A favorite July tradition, repeated for the third straight year this season, is reading the Paris Review summer issue beachside, with a fresh roll of NECCO wafers. The New England Confectionary Company’s candies don’t hold up well to the Gulf’s humidity, however, and quickly turn soft. The same proved true for my interest in the quarterly’s interviews, which I normally find very intriguing.

Despite issue #205’s interviews with deserving sources—Michael Holroyd, Imre Kertesz and Hermione Lee—my attention wasn’t captured. Blame it on my, and my fickle summer interests, rather than the publication or personalities, however.

For me, The Paris Review recently hit new heights when it was publishing Roberto Bolano’s The Third Reich in installments. But alas, the novel came to an end and we’re back to an assortment of poems, works of fiction and the occasional non-fictional entry.

While different readers always find pleasure and disappointment within the same material, I only found myself really enjoying a few pieces in the latest issue, notably David Gates’ The Curse of the Davenports and Kristin Dombek’s Letter From Williamsburg, neither of which left me feeling particularly joyful, happy or redeemed and the latter of which I was surprised served as the issue’s non-fiction submission.
