Big, Bent Ears

<p> <em>The Paris Review</em> and Rock Fish Stew are proud to introduce a new series called <strong>Big, Bent Ears: A Serial in Documentary Uncertainty</strong>. The bi-weekly series explores the theme of careful listening, in all its various incarnations. Drawing from documentary projects on the famed writer Joseph Mitchell and the experimental music festival Big Ears in Knoxville, Tennessee, each chapter is free to digress naturally, incorporating video, audio, photography, and writing, some in refined form, others raw. Our hope is that the theme of paying long, close attention will rub off on us, and we&rsquo;ll reach new depths. Stay tuned.</p>
