Issue: Autumn 2015

In the closing issue of The Southern Review’s eightieth anniversary volume, we bring together longtime contributors and new writers to help us celebrate the history and future of the journal. Stories take us from an El Salvadorian mountainside to a publishing house in London to the dangers lurking in our own backyard, while the issue’s essays span the breadth of courtship, marriage, and divorce, with humor, candor, and reflection about the possibilities of love. The poetry of the autumn issues includes new work by David Kirby, Jane Springer, and David St. John, as well as a suite of poems by emerging poet Anders Carlson-Wee. The autumn issues features the artwork of Alison Elizabeth Taylor, a Brooklyn-based artist who uses the age-old process of marquetry (cutting and collaging pieces of wood) to portray the strange and beautiful world around her.
