Issue: Winter 2015

The Southern Review is celebrating Mardi Gras—and the start of their eightieth anniversary year—with the winter 2015 issue. Michael Knight’s “Our Lady of the Roses” is set against the Mardi Gras celebrations in Mobile, Alabama, and the title story of Kirstin Valdez Quade’s forthcoming Night at the Fiestas visits Santa Fe for the festival spirit of the Southwest. Some of the nation’s leading poets, including Denise Duhamel, Charles Simic, and David Bottoms contribute work, as does Djibouti-born Abdourahman Waberi, translated from the French by Nancy Naomi Carlson. The winter issue features evocative black-and-white photographs of New Orleans’s biggest celebrations—Mardi Gras, Super Sunday, and Jazz Fest—by Louisiana-native Oscar Creech.
