Russia 2018, it was universally decided, had not just been a good World Cup, and not just a great World Cup. It had, in fact, been the best World Cup. That assessment may not last, of course: once we have all had a chance to reflect, it may not quite live up to the standards of the 1982 tournament, most people’s market leader whenever this conversation arises. Regardless of its exact place in the hierarchy, the effusive discussion itself will be of considerable relief to FIFA, which hitched its fortunes to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, for better or for worse. When … [Read more...] about Was Russia 2018 the Greatest of All World Cups?
An intimate, mutable black box at the top of the Guthrie with great views – through large windows on three sides, and a vertiginous amber-colored window in the floor – the Dowling Studio has become a hot spot under Joseph Haj’s leadership. Presenting both short scheduled runs and periodic “happenings” in response to current events, it’s worth paying attention to. Plus tickets are always $9. Even the wayfinding – up the escalator, left to the lobby, then left to the end of the lobby and up a cleverly concealed elevator to the ninth floor – enhances the feeling of going somewhere special. Or confuses people. It wouldn’t hurt to fix the wayfinding. Better signage? Or maybe more people in Guthrie T-shirts asking, “Can I help you find the Dowling?” These are the scheduled events for the new Dowling season, aka the Level Nine Series. All are local productions. Oct. 5-21: PRIME Productions: “Two … [Read more...] about Guthrie announces 2018-19 Dowling Studio season; Springboard buys a building

Though acclaimed for each, it is for the briefer art that he is especially valued. The novel in its spaciousness allows world enough and time for epochs to evolve, but the short story must seize in its thimble, all at once, crisis and its crux. And while the novel weakens under too much embroidery, the short story is a virtuoso’s arena — exemplified, say, by those two radically disparate suicides, Stefan Zweig and David Foster Wallace, the one sickened by Hitler’s Europe (“The Royal Game”), the other fevered by corporate America (“Mr. Squishy”). Virtuosity’s sentence-making is thickened, intricate, imbricated, often dazzling. And eventually, because of the nihilist pressure of the … [Read more...] about One Last Book From a Virtuoso of the Short Story
