There will be drinks.

The White Review No. 10 features interviews with French philosopher JACQUES RANCIERE, the short story writer and translator of Marcel Proust LYDIA DAVIS, and CAMILLE HENROT, winner of the Silver Lion for most promising young artist at the 2013 Venice Biennale. We have new fiction by the playwright BENEDICT ANDREWS, art critic and novelist CHRIS KRAUS (interviewed in TWR No. 8), NICOLA BARKER, whose tenth novel In the Approaches is out later this year, and the brilliant GREG BAXTER. We also have essays by Belgian novelist JEAN-PHILIPPE TOUSSAINT on the qualities – urgency and patience – necessary in the act of writing, the artist WILLIAM E. JONES on the mystery of the Pop painter Vern Blosum, ORIT GAT on what art magazines can be, and new poems by WESLEY ROTHMAN, VIDYAN RAVINTHIRAN, MARK PRINCE, LAURA ELLIOTT and NAJWAN DARWISH (translated from Arabic). Finally, we have a series by JOSHUA ABELOW, an artist who makes paintings and drawings that, in his own words, ‘mock the idea of artistic genius’, a series by German photographer ISABELLE WENZEL, and a cover by CHRISTIAN NEWBY.
