I haven't quite worked out all the kinks yet, as you can see from some inconsistencies in color and assorted other design anomalies, but, as you can also see, I've updated the look of Read Red. Welcome to the new and, I'm hoping, renewed incarnation of this blog. As always, Read Red is devoted, mostly, to my efforts at communist literary commentary. One worker-activist-reader-writer's admittedly idiosyncratic and decidedly non-academic analysis, criticism, praise and rants about books, literary news and the like. Hereabouts things often veer, as well, in other cultural and political and even, yes, personal directions. There's just no telling, you know? I go about as fer as I can go.
