I was very excited last week to finally flip through this long awaited book by Garth Risk Hallberg. I am happy to report that the book looks fantastic. Garth and Mark Batty Publisher have done a wonderful job with layout and design. An Exhibition, curated by the Humble Arts Foundation has also been annouced.



When I receive the New Yorker I flip to view the Cartoon Caption Contest, then quickly flip to the Goings on About Town. Fifty percent of the time Gus Powell has an image published on this page. His images are always a highlight. It’s hard to say that I have a favorite Powell image, but the one above always absorbs my interest. I love mystery in an image and this particular photograph is full of it.
