I agree with something Somerset Maugham wrote to Rebecca West about a manuscript of hers he was evaluating--"I want to feel it's a life I am living rather than a story I am reading." Bingo. Stephen O'Connor's "Work, Music and Love" delivered a whole life in thirteen pages....There is music in the plot and in the writing."
Former Editor, The Massachusetts Review
Rather than write the graven letter that I should, I wonder if you'll accept this email as a formal invitation to contribute to the Fiftieth Birthday double issue (Spring / Summer 2009) of The Massachusetts Review. This is, for once, by invite only, drawing from the roster of past contributors. whose work has stood the test of time. We can give you nearly a year, but it'd be even better if we got it sometime in the late summer. It'll be a grand parade, and you should be in it!
