Our series, The Editor's Desk, spotlights editors we admire and the manuscripts they're currently working on. Here Lauren Wein, executive editor at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, tells us about Kathleen Donohoe’s debut novel Ashes of Fiery Weather.

We asked Diane Seuss to write a bit about Myrtle Corbin, Diane's muse for part of her new collection Four-Legged Girl, the cover of which features a striking photograph of Myrtle herself. Diane gave us something dark, weird, and beautiful just as we knew she would.

We're giving away three copies of On Immunity: An Inoculation by Eula Biss to celebrate its paperback pub date! Don't miss out on your chance to grab a copy!

Some back-to-school reads from our very own Jeffery Renard Allen, Tony Hoagland, Diane Seuss, and Steve Stern, teachers all. These are, of course, for extra credit.
