  • Bertrand Marotte

    Dear so-hip-it-hurts Volume 1. Brooklyn:
    Just found your website. Not sure I want to read a purportedly literary publication that doesn’t know the difference between “compliment” and “complement”!

    • Tobias Carroll

      Apologies for the typo. (Happens to the best of us, I hope.) It’s been adjusted.
