From the publisher

Writing about 1922 from the ​​London Review of Books

'Perhaps for us now, peering out from our careening rock-hunk, 1922 serves as our elusive King Tut, our green-light vanishing point, the orgiastic past that year by year recedes' –  Tom McCarthy

It’s a hundred years since UlyssesThe Waste Land and Jacob’s Room were published. In this collection of pieces from the LRB archive, John Banville, Anne Carson and others look back at modernism’s ‘year zero’.

Featuring: John Banville, Anne Carson, Kirsty Gunn, Emma Hogan, Zachary Leader, Tom McCarthy, Lewis Nkosi, Don Paterson, Lawrence Rainey, Jonathan Rée, Helen Vendler, and Michael Wood.
