Named for Bertolt Brecht’s “The Threepenny Opera,” the literary quarterly thrived, building a loyal following drawn to Lesser’s eclectic mix of fiction, nonfiction, poetry — and the short writings that fall under the heading of “Table Talk.”. “Table Talk: From the Threepenny Review” (Counterpoint, $28, 356 pages) is also the name of the new book marking the magazine’s 35th anniversary dsw ballet flats. Edited by Lesser, Jennifer Zahrt and Mimi Chubb, the volume’s 99 essays, published between 1990 and 2013, reflect Threepenny’s wide range of writers and topics..
Coined by the late writer Leonard Michaels, the term “Table Talk” describes them well. They’re short, informal writings, not unlike conversations you’d have over dinner — if your companions were exceptionally smart, well-traveled and witty. Browse through the book, and you’ll find Michaels on mambo and rhythm, W.S. Di Piero on movie theaters and shootings, choreographer Mark Morris on the Kirov Ballet dsw ballet flats. Geoff Dyer muses on Burning Man and Shakespeare, Erik Tarloff considers the significance of “The Wire,” and Lesser praises Richard Ford’s Frank Bascombe novels. Writings by Claire Messud, Louise Gluck, Javier Marías, Luc Sante and Greil Marcus are also included..
Lesser, taking a recent break in the magazine’s North Berkeley offices, said she reads them all — authors from whom she’s requested specific pieces, to the hundreds of unsolicited manuscripts sent to her each week. She runs the publication on a tight budget, with Chubb, her deputy editor, the magazine’s only employee. Back in 1980, Lesser says she started with a few writers she knew and respected dsw ballet flats. Michaels, who was one of her professors, was an essential contributor, as were writers Christopher Ricks and Irene Oppenheim, poet Thom Gunn, and Lesser’s mother, author Millicent Dillon..
“We wrote to everybody we knew,” Lesser says. “We got the people who were going to be in the first issue, and they wrote to everybody they knew. We said, ‘We’re starting this magazine, and it’s going to cost $1 an issue, that’s $4 a year, and please subscribe.’ Within the first year, we had 500 subscribers.” Today, subscriptions number close to 9,000. The price is now $7 per issue, $25 for an annual subscription. Magazines come and go, but Lesser seems unconcerned about trends. The Internet was virtually nonexistent when she started, and she says she still doesn’t pay much attention to it. “I’ve never had any interest in counting clicks or hits,” she says. Threepenny launched a website in 1999, but Lesser says it has one purpose only: “to sell print copies of the magazine.” A digital edition recently was added to the site dsw ballet flats.
