Steven Millhauser’s story “After the Beheading” is featured in our current issue and posted below on this page, a none-too-consoling diversion given its subject of public vengeance and violence. Millhauser’s “Coming Soon,” read by Chang-rae Lee, appears on the latest New Yorker fiction podcast and we can’t help but think of Salmagundi’s home-base, Saratoga Springs, when we read or hear it.

Nobel Prize Awarded to Louise Glück

October 8, 2020

The Nobel Prize in Literature has just been awarded to the American poet Louise Glück — a writer we have long published, read and loved (her first published poems appeared in SALMAGUNDI #4, 1966/7).

She has contributed more than a dozen poems to SALMAGUNDI and for virtually every one its 34 summer sessions participated in the New York State Summer Writers Institute, held at SALMAGUNDI’s home, Skidmore College, which awarded her an honorary degree when she delivered the Steloff Lecture at the college in 1995.

Editor-in-Chief Robert Boyers reviewed Louise Glück’s first book in the PARTISAN REVIEW more than fifty years ago and wrote about her Collected Poems a few years ago in a lengthy review-essay for THE NATION Magazine that begins with a brief account of reading her early poems as a young editor of a new magazine.

Louise now joins a list of SALMAGUNDI contributors who have been awarded the Nobel Prize—Nadine Gordimer, JM Coetzee, Saul Bellow, Mario Vargas Llosa, Seamus Heaney.
