A forum for writers who want to test the boundaries of the traditional book review, the Voice Literary Supplement is smart, iconoclastic, and accessible literary and cultural criticism at its best. In a collection of some of the finest pieces culled from the last twenty years, War of the Words preserves the flavor of this revolutionary magazine and will introduce a whole new generation of readers to the riskiness, urgency, and fun that has always characterized the VLS.
