Book Review
Dana Thompson
“This blog is meant to be an easy and (hopefully) interesting way to hear about the literature that’s out there––whether it’s just been published or has had a couple lifetimes to steep on the shelves.”

Game Theory
Matt Raymond
‘Game Theory’ will respond to songs or trends important to the genres of hip-hop with highly thorough literary analyses, approaching the music through a critical lens not typically seen in mainstream music journalism. The multifarious and incredibly diverse world of hip-hop is a burgeoning, potent and powerful literary movement within itself and deserves to be treated as such.
