Art Feature

Simple But Dangerous (essay)

The body eclectic—artist Fabio D’Aroma’s expressively cartoonized bodies and physiognomies catch the flavor of an issue featuring Lynne Sharon Schwartz’s surgery memoir, as well as meaty and muscular fiction from Tiphanie Yanique, David Hernandez, E. C. Osondu, and Melanie Rae Thon; essays by Lia Purpura and Elvis Bego; poetry by Dana Levin, Jordan Smith, Peter Balakian, and Carol Moldaw; and much more, including translations from the Lithuanian, French, Japanese, Danish, and Russian.
