Vanity Fair Commends Shenandoah

wolcott2 The winter issue of Shenandoah gets a nice nod from James Wolcott in his Vanity Fair blog. In anitem titled “Smothers Mothers,” Wolcott singles out an essay titled “Ugly” by Joyce Davis for special mention, calling it “candid, funny, astute, unpretentious, nicely paced.” He quotes several of the passages in his blog, commends the issue to his readers (“it’s worth searching out Shenandoah at newsstands and bookstores that carry literary quarterlies”) and refers to another piece in this issue, James Lee Burke’s story titled “Big Midnight Special.” Wolcott concludes by suggesting. All in all, a pretty nice recommendation for the award-winning literary magazine. Just in case, here’s a link to subscribe to Shenandoah.

    It’s fun to see one of my favorite journalists and one of my favorite lit mags converge. Wolcott’s got good taste! Congrats, Joyce Davis and Shenandoah.
