Katherine A. Powers ‘A Reading Life’ Column Discontinued at Boston Globe

The Boston Globe has ended Katherine A. Powers‘ “A Reading Life” column. Powers will continue to write for The Washington Post and Barnes & Noble Review.

In a telephone interview, the literary critic explained: “I had a couple of unfortunate conversations with my editor, she said my last one would be March 6th. I could have written a farewell, but I just felt sick, I said ‘Let’s skip it.’” Powers can be contacted at this email address.

Powers also spoke about the future, completing a 10-year-old project: “I’m finishing a book about my father’s correspondence [the late novelist J.F. Powers]—they are comic masterpieces and I’ve shaped them into the final novel he never wrote. He wanted to write a family life novel. There are letters to people like Katherine Ann Porter and Robert Lowell, and it is really funny in a bleak way.”
