By Jason Boog Comment

Today Slate launched a monthly feature, the Slate Book Review. The New York Times has more details.

Check it out: “The first weekend of every month, the Slate Book Review will take over Slate’s home page, delivering reviews of the newest fiction and nonfiction; essays on reading, writing, and the great (and terrible) books of years gone by; author interviews; videos and podcasts; and much more. We’re proud to bring together Slatesters whose work you know and love with great new writers who’ve never appeared in our magazine before, all in one smart, essential package.”

As of this writing, you can read Allison Benedikt on What To Expect When You’re Expecting and Wesley Morris on “a poet’s investigation of blackness in American culture.”
