Issue: Spring - 2014

This spring, explore the desert in stories by Peter Levine, Aurelie Sheehan, and Beth Alvarado—three of the seven stories featured. This issue of The Southern Review also includes essays by William Lychack, Diana Spechler, and poets Lance Larsen and Anna Journey. Two new poems by David Kirby—one about Zelda Fitzgerald, another exploring Emily Dickinson—are joined by works by Wendy Barker, Bonnie Jo Campbell, David St. John and Ryan Teitman. Mary Lee Eggart’s colored-pencil drawings, featuring verdant flora and fauna, grace the cover and interior spread.
