Art Feature

Painter’s Dream
FULL STOP: A Conversation with Tom Burckhardt (interview)

Vast spans, subtle scapes. Tom Burckhardt’s stunning art feature, its images ranging from American urban to the Arctics and Asias of the imagination, announces the range of this issue. Richard Tillinghast’s real-life Istanbul jostles Kenneth Wong’s fictional Rangoon and Tomas Tranströmer’s lyric Swedish meditations. David Gates’s voice-fugue channels Samuel Beckett, and Kim Addonizio moves the spirit of Chet Baker through her lines of longing and loss. Stories by Peter LaSalle, Edith Pearlman, Magdalena Tulli, Vince Passaro, and others. Poets include Stuart Dischell, Karl Kirchwey, and Debra Nystrom; essayists, Lia Purpura, Marie Mutsuki Mockett, and William Pierce.
