Electric Literature Issue 3 PDF



Before Electric Literature relaunched as an online publisher with the first issue of Recommended Reading in 2012, we published six issues of a quarterly(ish) anthology. Available in all formats, including ebook and print, it pioneered a new publishing model that is standard practice today. Now, for the first time in years, PDF editions of those anthologies are available for purchase. In our third issue from February 2010, Aimee Bender introduces us to a young woman unable to summon the desire to sleep with her husband without payment in cash. Matt Sumell’s narrator feels capable of anything but can’t save those he loves. Rick Moody charts the rise and fall of a romance in a story written in 180 character tweets, while Man Booker nominee Patrick deWitt presents a bleak, funny tale of two movers who are going nowhere, and Jenny Offill chronicles the awkward vigil of a man caring for his terminally ill ex-wife.
