Rules—and ruins—of attraction. From Nicola Waldron’s memoir of the summons of first love, to Peter LaSalle’s unsettling fiction of literary erotics, to J. D. Daniels’s story of jealous transgression, Erica Funkhauser’s poems channeling John Berryman’s devastations, and the light of Vermeer refracted by poet Circe Maia. A generous suite of tributes to Gail Mazur, along with new work by the poet. The breadth of literary imaginings is counterpointed, and underscored, by the eerily witty precision of Matt Hope’s drawings of the future as remembered: strange ruins, new rules.  Much, much more.
