That’s really the way to read...

That’s really the way to read the issues of the Quarterly. Not to try reading the latest one straight through, but order a few back issues from its website,, and put them on your bedside table. Each page is an illumination of the consciousness, the culture that created you, and that is waiting to recreate you.

Lapham speaks the truth: the Quarterly is a perfect bedside-table or idle-plane-waiting companion.
