The Inaugural Edition of Hyperallergic Weekend

Hyperallergic, “a forum for serious, playful and radical thinking about art,” has launched a new online magazine, Hyperallergic Weekend, a venture spearheaded by the editorial collective of John Yau, Thomas Micchelli, Claudia La Rocco and Albert Mobilio.

It is, as Yau states in his introductory essay, “Unassimilated and Inadmissible,” interested in what “is simmering in the zone of the prohibited and unacceptable.”

This edition has a healthy serving of literary conversation including Yau’s review of Ben Lerner’s first novel Leaving the Atocha Station (Coffee House Press, 2011) and my review of Noah Eli Gordon’s The Source: an investigation in constrained bibliomancy and ambient research (Futurepoem Books, 2011).  Do take a look and subscribe.
