Scarecrow no.42 is now online. Editor Lee Rourke muses on the value of opening paragraphs ("the hook, the dazzling light that draws us closer, that pulls us into the text") and quotes the beginning of Lydia Davis’s translation of Maurice Blanchot’s Death Sentence. And this issue's cover star is Juan Rulfo whose remarkable Pedro Paramo (Serpent's Tail) is highly recommended.
