In the summer 2016 issue, travel the globe with The Southern Review. Raise a glass of wine in Yugoslavia with Josip Novakovich, track a jack pine savage with Adam Schuitema, and float down the Bogue Falaya with Alison Pelegrin. Ceridwen Dovey’s fiction explores rural South Africa, while Christine Sneed’s story tours Paris and David St. John’s long poem, “Emanations,” remembers the coast of California. Other contributions include poems by Louisiana Poet Laureate Peter Cooley, Tom Sleigh, and Rose McLarney, and fiction by Jill McCorkle and Argentinian author Eduardo Sacheri, translated by sports literature scholar Richard V.
