Grand Street articles posted

Doug Henwood writes:

Back in the late 1980s, I wrote four articles for the literary journal Grand Street, edited by Ben Sonnenberg. They’re on the transformation of the corporate titan (Morgan to Pickens), Yale and the CIA, Greider’s book on the Fed, and a psychoanalysis of money.

You can get them here. And thanks to Christopher Carrico (here too: Christopher Carrico) for sending them along.

Grand Street articles

And here, Henwood elaborates on experience working with GrandStreet, and its editor, Ben Sonnenberg:

Back in the late 1980s, I wrote four articles for the literary journal Grand Street, edited by Ben Sonnenberg. (Alexander Cockburn has a wonderful memoir of him here, illustrated with a photo he took of Sonnenberg and his friend Edward Said.) Grand Street was wonderful, and so was Sonnenberg—by far the best editor I ever worked with. He could suggest more in a phrase or a pairing of books for review than most editors could in a lifetime of comments.

Here are the pieces (and thanks to Christopher Carrico for sending them along). They’re scanned PDFs, so they’re each about a megabyte, sorry to say. But it’s worth preserving the original layout, because it was a beautiful old-style journal. Maybe someday, when I have a lot more time, I’ll turn them into text.

Old Livernose and the Plungers: J. Pierpont Morgan and T. Boone Pickens, Vol. 7, No. 1 (Autumn, 1987), pp. 175-184.

Spooks in Blue (Yale and the CIA), Vol. 7, No. 3 (Spring, 1988), pp. 212-219.

Federal Offenses (Greider on the Fed), Vol. 8, No. 1 (Autumn, 1988), pp. 209-218.

Money, Mind, and Matter (a psychoanalysis of money), Vol. 9, No. 1 (Autumn, 1989), pp. 237-246.
