Wondering what happened to your July issue of Common-place? A computer meltdown wreaked havoc with our offices. But thanks to the heroic efforts of web designer John McCoy, we’re back in business and delighted to enrich your summer reading!
To learn how New England’s Puritans turned death into Scrabble, why antebellum New Yorkers were fixated on the Mexican isthmus, or how one nineteenth-century teenager reckoned with love, head over to Common-place 11:4. Once you’re there, you can also enjoy ghostly verse from acclaimed poet Cole Swensen and peruse the latest installment of Ithaca, Josh Brown’s graphic novella.
