Issue: Spring - 2013

James Lee Burke brings us a story of two men on the run and a corrupt Hollywood cowboy with an agenda of his own. South Florida runaways, a village where stones mysteriously appear by people’s doors, utopianist dreams, and a disastrous high school heavy-metal show feature in new stories by Jaquira Díaz, Mika Seifert, Tamas Dobozy, and Chip Cheek. Bonnie Jo Campbell’s true crime essay “Crimes against a Wrecker Driver” takes us behind the scenes at a salvage shop. Kirk Curnutt explores the influential biography Zelda and its place in American culture. New translations of Ghalib by M. Shahid Alam accompany original poems by Carol Ann Davis, Anna Journey, David Bottoms, Corey Van Landingham, Jake Adam York, and many others.
