Letter from the Editor, September 2007


When I thought of the "confessions" theme for this month, it was hot on the heels of a friend's thesis defense in which he talked about confession in the works of Philip Roth. While I find confession within literature interesting, for certain, I--as a bibliophile--have a number of personal confessions to make.

  • -I have more books than I will probably ever read.

-I am something of an elitist at times, even though I try to shirk off my judgements of books by their covers.

-I guiltily peek at people's book covers on park benches, on planes, in restaurants, and anywhere else I might find them.

-I have crushes on literary characters.

In short, I've done just about everything that the Estella's Revenge writers have confessed to this month. I hope you have just as much fun reading our literary confessions as we had writing them.

I'd also like to send out good wishes to Estella's Revenge co-editor and bibliophile extraordinaire, Heather F. She's preparing for the arrival of her second baby bibliophile.

What a great theme for a book zine. And congratulations to Heather F on the baby!

Thanks so much, Heather! And I'm waiting very impatiently to hear news of Heather F's baby!
