Iowa City Lit­er­ary Fig­ures

Ed­i­tor’s Note

The Iowa Review - - THE IOWA REVIEW - Tim Taranto

We asked Tim Taranto—an artist, Iowa City res­i­dent, and Writ­ers’ Work­shop graduate—to cre­ate some sketches for us based on Iowa City lit­er­ary lore. The re­sults were fetch­ing, and we were in­spired to fur­ther cel­e­brate our lit­er­ary land­scape by host­ing the pho­tog­ra­phy con­test that led to Matthieu Biger’s shot, fea­tured on the cover of this is­sue, of lo­cal used book­store The Haunted Book­shop.

10:00 a.m.: Ray­mond Carver and John Cheever wait for the clerk to come open the liquor store.
