With the release of PAPER #04 we’ve completed the first year of our quarterly journal. Our launch event featured the American actor Harvey Friedman reading from the journal of Joshua Cohen’s writing.

The fourth issue of p98a PAPER features the European travel diaries of the inimitable American writer Joshua Cohen, whose books include the critically acclaimed Witz (2010), Four New Messages (2012), and the Book of Numbers (2015). Contained within this issue’s day-glo covers, Cohen’s rapacious literary intelligence ranges over the sounds and sights of Odessa, paint flakes in a Bucharest hostel, an amendment to Herodotus, “new translations” of Da Vinci and Freud, and the adventures of the great Nicolas Joseph Lucien Louis Jérôme Merovingia Carolingia Capet Valois Bourbon Louis XVI Chauvin, the Honorable, the Tolerable, the III.

We are also pleased to note that all four p98a PAPER issues are ready for the holidays in a handsome box-set.
