"The one journal I read cover to cover as soon as it arrives—ZYZZYVA is that smart, that brilliantly curated …"
"Zyzzyva is a snouted beetle, as any dictionary kid knows. It's a word that nearly can't be played in Scrabble, on account of all the Z's. But those are novelty uses. The real meaning is this superb literary journal, which has real meaning. If you want to learn the things that literature can do with language, read it."
"There are hundreds of small magazines on the West Coast, but this is one of the best."
