An Interview with Donald Hall

Detonations and responses. The pressure of consequences public and private moves through fiction by Tom Bissell, Carolyn Cooke, Marjorie Sandor, and others. It turns lyrical in work by Charles Simic, Major Jackson, Kathleen Graber, and Melissa Green, and flares up surprisingly in essays by Paul West, Lia Purpura, Lynne Sharon Schwartz, and Alex Lemon. The issue also includes a career-spanning interview with Donald Hall and a portfolio of artist Ellen Driscoll’s strikingly engaged installations.
