5 Most Popular February Posts


Our traffic reached an all-time high last month, but five posts in particular generated a lot of interest. (Musicians and poets — who knew?)

Here’s a rundown of February’s most-read pieces:



1) “An Exemplars Special: E.E. Cummings, a Life by Grace Cavalieri. Her monthly feature, “Poetry Exemplars,” already enjoys a huge following, but Grace Cavalieri’s review of this new book about the iconic e.e. cummings drew especially high numbers.

2) A review of Wil S. Hylton’s Vanished: The Sixty-Year Search for the Missing Men of World War II by James A. Percoco. Will we ever get tired of reading about WWII? Apparently not.

3) Books Alive! 2014. Hundreds of wise, wise readers logged on to learn more about the Independent’s annual writing conference, which takes place March 29, 2014. Haven’t registered yet? Better get moving.

4) “The Top 10 Historical Fiction Authors” by M.K. Tod. You may think you know which historical fiction authors are the best, but you’re woefully mistaken. This list will set you straight.

5) A review of Stephen Walsh’s Musorgsky and His Circle: A Russian Musical Adventure by Carolyn Sienkiewicz. A story about five 19th-century Russian composers seeking to create a national musical identity? Where do we sign?
