Nathaniel Rich (novelist)

From Wikipedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Nathaniel Rich (born March 5, 1980) is an American novelist and essayist. He is a senior editor at The Paris Review and the author of a novel, The Mayor's Tongue (ISBN 978-1594489907), which was published by Riverhead in 2008. A work of nonfiction, San Francisco Noir: The City in Film Noir from 1940 to the Present (ISBN 978-1892145307), was published by The Little Bookroom in 2005. Rich has written essays and criticism for The New York Review of Books, Vanity Fair, The New York Times, The Nation and Slate.

Rich is an alumnus of Yale University, where he studied literature. After graduation he worked on the editorial staff of The New York Review of Books. He moved to San Francisco to write San Francisco Noir, which The San Francisco Chronicle named one of the best books of 2005. That year he was hired as an editor by The Paris Review.[1]

The Mayor's Tongue was described by Carolyn See in The Washington Post as a "playful, highly intellectual novel about serious subjects -- the failure of language, for one, and how we cope with that failure in order to keep ourselves sane."[2] A number of prominent artists and book designers—including Rodrigo Corral, David Rees, and Zach Dodson of Featherproof Books—as well as readers have contributed to an ongoing project to design cover art for books by the fictional Constance Eakins, a central character in The Mayor's Tongue.[3]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
