The Fall of Night

Let the meticulously curated words of Anne Boyer wash over you and pull you into night; read her latest essay in Lapham’s Quarterly. Snuggling up with Karl Marx, she tucks Djuna Barnes in alongside Walt Whitman and Mary Shelley, Silvia Federici and Milton. Witches flap by (“Witches were the flaneurs of the night sky”). In her own words directing us via Twitter to this latest article, “I wrote on dusk in Kansas City & Marx & lights turning on & the streets & nightwood & more.”
