Books Received, Issue 83

the minnesota review welcomes proposals for reviews of these and other recent books as well as journals, significant articles, and other works reflecting cultural and intellectual currents.  For reviews, we much prefer overviews to reports on specific books. For examples, check the review essays in recent past issues, available here. Please submit review essays to Janell Watson at submissions@theminnesotareview.org.  We do not publish reviews of creative works.
