Tin House by Win McCormack( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
From the website: When we started Tin House fourteen years ago, we had the crazy notion to be bicoastal. Not in Manhattan and LA, as everyone then assumed, but in Portland and Brooklyn. We wanted to tap into the long-standing vitality of both cultural centers. Alive and vibrant with independent artists, writers, and musicians, they were also at the forefront of thinking about what it means to be a sustainable modern city. Nearly fifteen years later, to our delight and dismay, both places have become cliche cool. With this issue, we wanted to step back, cut through the hype and the ridicule, and give our readers a sampling of what attracted us to these places in the first place, and what continues to excite us. There is no one Portland, no one Brooklyn, and we don't intend for this to be the definitive record of their writing, art, and music. Our aim is not to memorialize, but to stop time briefly to show you the ever-evolving dynamism of these cities
