Book Review Call for Quotation Submissions
This weekend’s New York Times Book Review devoted the “TBR: Inside the List” column to discussing The Yale Book of Quotations, specifically the relative dearth of quotations from recent literature. Dwight Garner says, “A lot’s been written already – most of it deservedly positive – about the new ‘Yale Book of Quotations,’ edited by Fred R. Shapiro. It’s an attractive book: clean, tart, concise. And Shapiro’s got a nice eye for recent bits of pop flotsam.” Garner invites readers to send in their favorite short fiction and non-fiction quotations from writers born in 1950 or later to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If enough contributions are sent in, the Book Review will print the best on the back page of a forthcoming issue.
