Issue: Winter 2017

This winter, go from the Atchafalaya Basin to northern Afghanistan, from Matisse’s studio to Klamath County, Oregon, all within the pages of The Southern Review. The new issue includes stories by National Book Award finalist Joan Silber and Pulitzer Prize finalist James Lee Burke, as well as stories by Qais Akbar Omar, whose previous memoir about growing up in Afghanistan was translated into twenty languages. Essays meditate on lunar ice caps, the reasons we run, and the pieces of clothing that bind generations together. Former U.S. Poet Laureate Charles Simic contributes to the issue, as do other longtime contributors David St. John, Wendy Barker, and Susan Ludvigson, who are joined in the pages by a number of poets making their The Southern Review debuts, including Joelle Bielle, Aza Pace, and Jessica Goodfellow. The issue also offers a glimpse inside the late abstract expressionist painter Cy Twombly’s studio, as viewed through the lens of photographer Sally Mann.
