Selected online things from the defunct magazine Grand Street.

Death Is Not the End by David Foster Wallace

Speaking of Grand Street, issue # 67 (Fire) (1999) must be collectible. It marked the English debut of Roberto Bolaño with "Phone Calls", translated by Mark Schafer. Upon his death, the translation was reprinted in his memory, in Grand Street # 72 (Detours) (2003).
